Plans are being made for fracking to take place under Sherwood Forest where an ancient oak stands where according to legend Robin Hood and his merry men rested.
Ineos, one of the world’s biggest chemicals company, is poised to start looking for gas under Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, in a move which could lead to it seeking permission to frack the area.
The area could become a flashpoint with campaigners from Frack Free Nottinghamshire saying they will copy Robin Hood’s example and “defend Sherwood Forest”.
You defend the forest up there at ground level and they’ll frack hundreds of feet below you. You’ll not even know it’s going on.
