Fracking under national parks backed by MPs - BBC News
Drilling would only be allowed 1,200m below national parks like the Lake District
MPs have voted to allow fracking for shale gas 1,200m below national parks and other protected sites.
The new regulations - which allow drilling from outside the protected areas - were approved by 298 to 261.
Opposition parties and campaigners criticised the lack of a Commons debate - and accused ministers of a U-turn as they previously pledged an outright ban on fracking in national parks.
