The ban on fracking in England will be reinstated, new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has said.

What is fracking?
Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a technique for recovering gas and oil from shale rock.
It involves drilling into the earth and directing a high-pressure mixture of water, sand and chemicals at a rock layer, to release the gas inside.
Wells can be drilled vertically or horizontally in order to release the gas.
