Frack Free Tinker Lane

After a fairly uneventful summer, you may have noticed the construction of the rather large Igas drill on the A634, between Barnby Moor and Blyth during November. Drilling has started at Tinker Lane and is expected to be continuous for 60 days, 24/7 — until a depth of 1,800 metres has been reached.

In colder parts of the world, many species spend the winter in hibernation, lowering their body temperature and reducing their heart rate and breathing, so they use up less energy. Here in the UK our relatively mild climate means that very few species actually use this technique and most creatures will be active all winter. read more
