A Conservative peer has apologised for "any offence caused" by his comments about fracking, and insisted he did not believe the north east of England was "desolate".

Former energy secretary Lord Howell of Guildford had said there was "plenty of room" and less concern than was the case over "beautiful natural areas".

He was criticised by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Friends of the Earth.

Downing Street said Lord Howell did not speak for the government.
