Since 25 July the West Sussex village of Balcombe has become the frontline in the campaign against Hydralic Fracturing, or Fracking, the highly controversial gas and oil extraction process.
Report Digital has a large selection of video rushes now at the online video library, covering the Balcombe resistance and Frack Off protests from earlier in the year.
Today saw the government give the green light to Fracking in the UK following last year’s two earth tremors in Lancashire that were blamed on the initial gas extraction tests. The film Gasland documented how drinking water was contaminated and various damaging health effects, including cancer, were emerging across the US due to Fracking.
