Independent film maker Angus MacFadyean is working on a project that he describes as a 'sense of your journey' about the issue of unconventional coal bed seam extraction that has hit the headlines in Wiltshire.

In Warminster the news that two licences have been granted locally has seen weekly meetings held including one yesterday at the Rose and Crown which was filmed by Angus.

"It was interesting to see that there people appeared there from all walks of life," said Angus who has come over from Kent for the week.
