A controversial incinerator to burn Norfolk's rubbish has had vital government funding withdrawn from the project.
The £530 million plant planned to be built near King's Lynn is already under review after the Conservatives lost control of Norfolk County Council in the May local elections.
Now the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs has withdrawn a key grant called the Waste Infrastructure Credit which may scupper the entire project.
Contracts have already been signed and it's possible the council could lose millions of pounds if the incinerator is not built.
