Responding to the news that Ineos has lost its legal challenge against the Scottish Government, Scottish Liberal Democrat energy spokesman Liam McArthur MSP said:

"There will be relief that this legal challenge proved unsuccessful but communities at risk of being fracked will have been unimpressed to see Scottish Government spin laid bare.

"The First Minister has been adamant in her description of an outright fracking ban. Her legal counsel dismissed this as PR bluster.

"Liberal Democrats are quite clear that opening up a whole new front of carbon-based fuels and energy production would do nothing to help meet our climate commitments."
