Greenpeace campaigners block the village green in Chancellor George Osborne’s Tatton constituency, erecting mock drilling rigs and other fracking equipment, while climbers have occupied the first floor balcony of his constituency office building and renamed it as the headquarters of “Frack & Go” The fracking of Osborne’s village green comes as a ComRes poll is released, showing the majority of his constituents oppose shale gas extraction, with widespread concern over noise and disruption, earth tremors and the impact on local house prices should fracking go ahead in the area.
