Ineos threatens to sue National Trust in order to explore for fracking case on its land

Fracking giant Ineos has threatened the National Trust with legal action to allow it explore for shale gas on its land.

The petrochemicals group, which owns and runs the Grangemouth oil refinery, has licences to look for the new fuel across swathes of the UK.

It is currently blocked from carrying out such work in Scotland pending the outcome of the current public consultation on fracking, which some scientists believe is environmentally dangerous.
