NY debates controversial gas drilling process

New Yorkers at loggerheads over "fracking", as economic boost vies with environmental fears.

    The US state of New York is considering whether to go ahead with a controversial form of gas drilling.

    Activists want to keep a moratorium in place on hydraulic fracturing - also known "fracking".

    Supporters say it will be good for the economy, but opponents say the practice puts the environment at risk.
