West Sussex councillors told a public meeting last week that they want to build an incinerator to the north east of Crawley, just the width of a motorway away from a housing development and a school. Everyone in the room was very angry and applauded me when I attacked the council’s plans.
Local people in the Hunts Cross area of Liverpool scored a victory last week when they forced the council to halt plans for a new incinerator. Meanwhile, in nearby Kirkby more than 50 people came to the first meeting of a new campaign against pollution caused by a local factory.
