A 27-year-old car with just 132 miles on the clock has been sold at auction today.

The £30m bill for pulling Norfolk's incinerator plans

The cost to the people of Norfolk over the shock decision to pull out of plans to build a waste incinerator at King's Lynn, has been revealed.

Norfolk County Council will be forced to pay huge financial penalties as it prepares to officially scrap the project next week.

A series of Government delays in giving planning permission for the incinerator threatened to push the penalities for dropping the scheme, higher and higher, giving the council no other choice but to pull out.

Pulling out now leaves Norfolk County Council facing a bill of £30.26 million pounds. They have financial reserves of £19m and with an under spend this year of £3m, it leaves them with £8m still to find.

There's been a recommendation that plans to build Norfolk's controversial waste incinerator should be scrapped.

The proposed incinerator was due to be built at King's Lynn. It's proved a hugely divisive issue, with considerable local opposition.

Today a report from county council officers recommended there should be a change of plan because Secretary of State Eric Pickles's delay in approving or rejecting it would add significantly to an already very costly project - almost £30 million pounds in compensation and extra payments.

County Council leader George Nobbs made the announcement this afternoon.

Sam Boore was inspired by a trip to the RAF Marham heritage centre so he's filled his room with military memorabilia.

It's even been designated as an official "learning destination" by the Children's University organisation.
