A protest march was held at the first exhibition.

Chemical firm Ineos wants to carry out tests on privately-owned land off Bramley Moor Lane in Marsh Lane, near Eckington, in north-east Derbyshire.

The industry giant has been told by Derbyshire County Council it does not need to carry out an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).

Campaigners held a protest march at the first public exhibition hosted by Ineos back in January.
