Druridge Bay Saved from Opencast Coal Mining
Banks Group Defend The Mining Operation
The Banks Group, who are based in County Durham, have recently posted to defend the plans:
"Our Highthorn mine is a popular target for protestors – who claim they must ‘save Druridge Bay’. This is misleading, our plans are more than 500m away from any beach and will be fully restored following works."
Their website details the plans for Highthorn, and the reasons they are perusing coal - whom many consider a dated and dirty fossil fuel.
