Campaigners seek £20k for legal challenge against oil drilling in Lincolnshire Wolds

Legal challenge launched to halt Biscathorpe plans

Campaigners in the Lincolnshire Wolds have launched a bid to raise £20,000 to fund a legal challenge against a planning inspector’s decision to allow oil drilling in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
