Many office colleagues and friends who attended Glastonbury last week have been telling stories that indicate they may have experienced the some side effects of a fracking accident over the weekend.
“It was the strangest thing,” says Joan Millane “at around half seven on friday evening I was watching interpol and having a couple more drinks when all of a sudden everything started to go blurry. The earth tilted and I fell on my face. I’m surprised no one else felt it.”
But many other fans did report experiencing similar episodes with veterans saying it that it was their “blurriest one yet”. Many fans were not prepared for what scientists think were flurries of fracking related microquakes, and were forced to “go and lie down for a while and maybe have a little puke” to try and regain their balance.
Doctors are also reporting that festival goers are coming to them suffering from acute poisoning after attending the festival. “These people were innocently drinking for four days straight when they were all suddenly struck down with a terrible vomiting bug. These then somehow mutate into migraines and then a nausea that can last for days. There was without a doubt some sort of toxin in that environment.”
“I hadn’t even eaten anything since leaving home on Wednesday so food can’t be what made me sick,” says Stuart McCann. “It’s probably gas fumes from fracked areas of the campsite or some of those chemicals they pump into the ground. We’re over here trying to enjoy our Molly and we don’t know what chemicals their putting into our systems.”
