Could this be the first deaths caused by a Fracking Mudslide

Below are 3 news reports regarding this horrendous tragedy.  Only one mentions oil and gas companies and only very briefly.  The Youtube video above tells a whole different story.  It seems very likely that the mudslide has been caused by hydraulic fracking.

  1. It was a mudslide following rain; the sort of event seen frequently in Britain this winter. Very unlikely to be linked to fracking which of course acts on subsurface strata, not surface soils. If the slide had been following seismic activity, then that may have been fracking related; but there are no reports of this. The youtube video linked is 4 minutes of zooming on a satellite image and speculating. I don’t think that this sort of uninformed waffle helps the anti-fracking cause at all.
