A group of protesters are confident a potential fracking in the Forest of Dean will not go ahead. Council members have been at Shire Hall discussing the matter and whether permission should be awarded.

A spokesperson outside the hall said, “I don’t believe it will go ahead because I don’t think there’s any chance of the public letting it go ahead”.
