for all the details. Good evening. And MP has told fracking protesters
to go home. A barricade has been built across the entrance. They say
that the controversial method would pollute water supplies. Our
environment correspondent h`s this report. This site has been
barricaded. We offer straight because we cannot get on to the
site. And without fencing, this site is open to anybody, the protesters
and their children and local people and their pets and animals to wander
onto it. The protest is now in its seventh week. Or it and gas

more determined than ever not to be moved.
Earlier I spoke to the Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Sttart
and asked him ` if there was future fracking
on the site ` would he welcome it or would he join the protestors?
Well, what I said to the protesters, the one date `` the one plaxed in
East Yorkshire that we can guarantee there will not be any frackhng is
the paddock outside which they are having their protest. That was not
the answer, with respect, to the question. Would you welcome it if a
company wanted to frack? Wotld you be saying that is all due to the
party line along with David Cameron and Owen Paterson, saying bring it
on? The point is to look at any proposal when it comes forw`rd. I
would take a lot of convinchng that the impact on the local comlunity
was sufficiently reduced to support fracking in this area. But we need
for a proposal `` we need to wait for a proposal to come. If something
is found there, this inform`tion will be sold on. Fracking whll then
start. We'd eventually protdsters? I would like to understand wh`t your
line would be then? We would need to see a proposal come forward. If
somebody came forward with ` proposal that was beneficial to the
area and not inconvenience local residents in an unacceptabld way, it

there was something under the ground. Indie rock. They ard doing
tests to find conventional oil and gas. Anything they do will tell them
about the geology of the arda and that might inform someone who might

to the protesters who are there Stop making out that there hs a
fracking side where there isn't any and I think move on, get off our
verge and go home. When a proposal does come, N`Gage. They feel very
passionate. They can feel as passionate as they like. Whdn I met
then the other day, I said, don t tell them that this fence fdll down
in the wind. It was vandalised. If you want to build trust and
understanding with local people don't go around committing criminal
acts and then pretending th`t they did not happen. That fans dhd not
fall down by itself, people vandalised it. Doing that jtst
undermines the view of the local community on the protesters'
behaviour. They have to obex the law and tell the truth about thd fact
that that site is the one shte in East Yorkshire that you can
guarantee one never have fr`cking on it because it is a conventional oil
and gas side. `` convention`l Ellen gas site. Thank you for comhng. Let

encourages kids to stay acthve. Rugby is a great sport for that It
is not just about playing, ht is about socialising. And being an idol

lot of confidence. When I w`s back at work, being able to stand up in
