Sadiq Khan to tell London councils they should ban fracking

London Mayor Sadiq Khan will this week recommend that councils across London block any appraisal, investigation or exploration for fracking for shale gas. The draft London Plan, set to be published this week, will “in effect ban fracking in London”, says the Observer. Khan will also say that any applications that reach his office will be denied, reports the BBC. Khan called the method of extracting shale gas “harmful” and a risk to public health, reports City A.M.. “There is absolutely no place for fracking in London and I remain firm in my belief that any such application must be refused,” he said.
