Protests continue over UK fracking decision

Anti-fracking protesters hold a "slow" march to hinder the journey of industrial trucks heading to a gas drilling site.

    Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron has announced financial incentives for shale gas extraction, the controversial energy source known as 'fracking'.

    Local authorities will now be allowed to keep one hundred percent of their local tax on fracking sites, twice as much as for other businesses. 

    This has caused an uproar among the anti-fracking protesters.
