Ellesmere Port sits on the River Mersey and Manchester Ship Canal and is the latest place under threat from the fracking industry.
Fossil fuel company IGas wants to explore for shale gas on land at Ellesmere Port – but the council has to give permission first.
The local community is concerned this test drilling could lead to fracking and needs your support. Can you take a few minutes and tell the council to keep Ellesmere Port frack free?
Fracking is being put on hold or banned outright in France, Germany, Scotland and other countries as the risks to people and the environment become ever clearer.
