The British government has announced a series of measures which would fast-track fracking applications in England.

Ministers will be allowed to intervene on shale gas planning applications if they believe local councils are not processing them quickly enough, a decision likely to prove fractious.

The government believes that developing shale gas is a national priority to ensure energy security, while campaigners claim they are running roughshod over local people.
