Aware of fracking’s controversial reputation, further investigation seems necessary.

Back to work on the BHLR

After a few days of Christmas and New Year rest and recuperation for some and I imagine, urgent strategy planning for others, work on the BHLR has begun again, with chain saw crews, police, private security guards, engineers, tree and nature protectors and road opponents returning to their pre-holiday positions, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick.
