New Report on West Newton A – Mini-frack WAS attempted - a dangerous microcosm of UK fracking?

Mini-frack test WAS carried out at West Newton after all

A new and comprehensive report presents evidence of a huge catalogue of problems and harm caused by Rathlin Energy's incompetence at their West Newton A well site in Holderness, and failure by the council to protect and enforce.  It says that Rathlin Energy did carry out the planned mini-frack test at West Newton A well site after all, and there is video evidence of the site Field Manager admitting to this.

The company announced at the beginning of August that they would soon complete a mini-frack test on the Bowland Shale.  But less than 2 weeks later there was an emergency well shutdown, and the test was abandoned.  The well has since been mothballed, and Rathlin are drilling a new well just a few fields away.

The report "highlights the nefarious approach of the multinationals, the contempt they hold government agencies, councils, communities and the environment in and their desire to steamroll ahead with fracking – whatever the cost"

A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about EDWARD JONES FINANCE, that they can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. I have been in a financial mess for the pass 7 months now,She advised I give it a try so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation to him, he therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $390,000.00 at a very low interest rate of 2% and today I am a proud business owner and can now take good care of my kids, If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 2% and better repayment schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES FINANCE email:- {} OR Text +1(307) 241-3712 or go to there page on
