Letter: Fracking

Date published: 11 September 2018

Dear Editor,

I hope Rochdale council is not looking towards any fracking in the areas around Rochdale, they have already destroyed so much of our environment with these useless turbines.

They are an eyesore, anything for money. Hundreds of years of non-interference by man and look at the area now. Everywhere you look they are there.

All these company’s care about is making money.

I saw a programme about the effects of fracking in America contaminated water supplies, increase in cancer.

The ground shaking lorry’s continually driving through the area with water, it was a nightmare for those poor people and who cares nobody.
