National Trust has 'open mind' on fracking

National Trust director-general Dame Helen Ghosh says the conservation charity has an "open mind" about allowing fracking on its land.

Her comments appear to contradict the Trust's position of a "presumption against" the controversial technology.

Campaigners say the environmental risks of fracturing rock to release gas are too great.
A spokesman says the Trust has not changed its position but will review any new evidence in the future.
