Frack­ing go-ahead

Coventry Telegraph - - NATIONAL -

EN­ERGY firm Cuadrilla is to be­gin frack­ing at its Pre­ston New Road site to­day af­ter an en­vi­ron­men­tal cam­paigner failed in a High Court bid to block op­er­a­tions.

Mr Jus­tice Sup­per­stone dis­missed Bob Den­nett’s ap­pli­ca­tion for an in­junc­tion pre­vent­ing the com­pany from frack­ing the UK’s first hor­i­zon­tal shale gas well pend­ing his pro­posed le­gal chal­lenge.

Mr Den­nett said: “We didn’t get the re­sult we were look­ing for, but we will fight on.” ROYAL bride Princess Eu­ge­nie shared two shy kisses with her new hus­band Jack Brooks­bank af­ter their lav­ish royal wed­ding cer­e­mony.

On the West Steps of St Ge­orge’s Chapel, new­ly­weds Eu­ge­nie and Jack beamed with de­light and waved to on­look­ers.

The cou­ple ten­ta­tively per­formed the kisses for the cam­eras on the steps, which were dec­o­rated with masses of au­tumn flow­ers and lined with Gre­nadier Guards in their dis­tinc­tive red tu­nics and bearskin hats.

The Queen’s grand­daugh­ter Eu­ge­nie, who is ninth in line to the throne, and tequila brand am­bas­sador Jack, said their vows in front of a star-stud­ded con­gre­ga­tion of 800 peo­ple.

Watch­ing in the his­toric 15th-cen­tury chapel of Wind­sor Cas­tle were the monarch, the Duke of Ed­in­burgh, and more than 40 mem­bers of the royal fam­ily in­clud­ing the Prince of Wales, the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge, the Duke and Duchess of Sus­sex, and the bride’s mother the Duchess of York, pic­tured.

Celebri­ties in­cluded Hol­ly­wood ac­tresses Liv Tyler and Demi Moore, su­per­mod­els Kate Moss and Naomi Camp­bell, singers Ricky Martin, El­lie Gould­ing and James Blunt, ac­tor Stephen Fry, and artist Tracey Emin, as well as pop star Rob­bie Wil­liams and his wife Ayda Field.

Blus­tery con­di­tions led to some guests los­ing their hats as they ar­rived.
