Although only small all three tremors will be seen as significant to protesters who are doing everything they can to put some common sense into proceedings.

Fracking is thought to be safe by industry experts and the plant at Little Plumpton is the most monitored there has ever been, however protesters believe that safety measures have not been put in place just in case of an accident.

These tremors which measured 0.8, 0.3×2 and 0.2 show fracking caused the earthquakes and safety has to be a priority and work should be halted.
