Anti incinerator campaigners in King's Lynn hit out at the Environment Agency

Campaigner's against the proposed King's Lynn incinerator have responded to the Environment Agency's decision to approve the plans.

"The agency does not scrutinise applications as thoroughly as might be expected.

"The decision is comparable to getting a driving license, not everyone obeys the rules or drives a roadworthy vehicle all the time and foreign convictions do not count.

“Environment Agency officers told me they could not take in to account [the plant's proposed contractor] Wheelabrator’s permit violations in America.”

– Mike Knights, Anti Incinerator campaigner
