A gorgeous stretch of coastline, Druridge Bay in Northumberland, faces desecration by a mining company desperate to gouge out three million tonnes of coal.
For the past three weeks Friends of the Earth and local residents have been taking part in a historic Public Inquiry to try to stop the coal mine.
But it’s now over to the Secretary of State to decide whether to approve it – or set a stunning precedent and leave coal in the ground.
As we await the decision, we need to keep up the pressure. Help us by writing to the new Secretary of State.
