THE London borough of Brent is now a fracking-free zone.

A council spokesman said: “This is where it gets a bit hazy. Theoretically, Brent Friends of the Earth should let us know…It probably would not happen in Brent because it’s quite a built-up part of northwest London, although there are a lot of parks.”

This is good news for Brent Friends of the Earth, which had used placards and shouting to picket the council’s office. Their spokesperson adds: “I’m trying to remember the source. But I think Edgware was one of the areas being considered, along with Croydon.”

Croydon is not in Brent. Edgware is in the London borough of Barnet. But other than that, she is factually spot on. This is a victory for FotE.
