Frack free Greater Manchester group added on their Facebook account “To reduce our carbon emissions fossil fuels need to be left in the ground. Due to its detrimental local health impacts and climate-busting methane emissions fracking is especially toxic and should be urgently banned across the UK as it has been in other countries.”

Because of the numbers of people attending it is expected to be a nightmare for emergency services and roads for hours will be shut down in the Altrincham area.
