FRACKING will be discussed at a public meeting.

Representatives from Hampshire County Council will explain more about oil and gas developments at the meeting.

The community forum takes place on Tuesday from 6.30pm in Merchistoun Hall, Horndean.

Clanfield councillor Ken Moon said: ‘This is an opportunity to listen to the experts speak about hydraulic fracturing: what it is, what it is for and how proposals for hydraulic fracturing would be determined in Hampshire. This is a topic that is attracting a lot of interest, discussion and misinformation.’
