Good evening. An energy firl says it has no plans to carry out fracking

:00:10.:00:14.

in parts of East Yorkshire, despite claims by local campaigners. Rathlin

:00:15.:00:17.

Energy have applied to the Environment Agency to carry out

:00:18.:00:20.

testing at sites near Beverley and Aldborough, which campaigners

:00:21.:00:25.

believe are a precursor to fracking. They're calling on the comp`ny to be

:00:26.:00:31.

more transparent. Here at Walkington in East Xorkshire

:00:32.:00:35.

the ground has already been prepared for oil and gas exploration.

:00:36.:00:37.

Canadian`owned Rathlin Energy Limited already have a licence to

:00:38.:00:42.

search for oil and gas. The company has now applied to the Environment

:00:43.:00:46.

Agency to carry out what's know n as a "mini fall off test" or

:00:47.:00:49.

"mini`frack" both here and `t another site in Aldborough. This

:00:50.:00:54.

sort of test, claims Greenpdace is used to check whether a well is

:00:55.:01:01.

suitable for fracking. IU scaremongering? It is thdre on

:01:02.:01:08.

the application in black and white, will you be injecting liquids into

:01:09.:01:15.

this well? Yes. Then they go on to describe a procedure that is a

:01:16.:01:19.

precursor to fracking. I wotld love to hear the explanation to this

:01:20.:01:21.

Fracking involves drilling down into the gas bearing shale rock `nd

:01:22.:01:25.

injecting a mixture of water, sand and chemicals under high prdssure.

:01:26.:01:28.

This fractures the rock, releasing shale gas which flows back to ground

:01:29.:01:33.

level. The process has been blamed for causing small earthquakds and

:01:34.:01:36.

contaminating water supplies in the USA.

:01:37.:01:41.

In a statement, the company said that they are not, they say that a

:01:42.:01:50.

well testing programme is there to... Not shield gas, and no

:01:51.:01:57.

fracking is involved. `` sh`le gas. But campaigners say they ardn't

:01:58.:02:00.

satisfied with the companies assurances, and will continte to

:02:01.:02:07.

oppose its application. One of the country's youngest mayors

been a fierce debate over how much local councillors should get paid

:02:15.:02:17.

after members of Lincolnshire County Council voted to increase their

:02:18.:02:23.

allowances by 23%. I think we need to be careftl that

:02:24.:02:28.

we don't end up in a situathon where only independently wealthy people or

:02:29.:02:32.

people who are retired or pdople whose partner's can support them,

:02:33.:02:35.

are able to go into local Government.

damage, but I didn't my head forward. I was just trying to push

:03:39.:03:42.

him away really with my head. I shouldn't have done that. I

:03:43.:03:48.

apologise to everyone. We whll accept the apology. I think it has

:03:49.:03:51.

been big and brave enough to come out and apologise, which yot would

expect. Everybody can get c`rried away. But not everyone's so

forgiving. There were calls today for Pardew to be sacked or given a

10`match ban. Do it on the street and you would be arrested.

has largely been overshadowdd by the touchline incident. There wdre
