The Scottish parliament has voted narrowly in favour of a ban on fracking, after Scottish National party MSPs abstained following a debate that gave a strong indication of the changed nature of the new Holyrood chamber.
YouGov’s poll for the Sunday Times, suggests that more Brits oppose fracking than support it, in a change from a previous poll.
A new poll by Survation suggests that fracking should be devolved to Scottish authorities. Only Conservative voters oppose the idea.
It's been a devastating week for the shale gas movement, from anti-fracking protests near Blackpool to damaging polls and censored government reports.
