The company Veolia wants to shred waste and generate electricity.

Last month planners advised councillors to reject an application for the plant, saying they have concerns about the company being able to operate 24 hours a day, as well as potential associated noise.

National League side Lincoln City pulled off another FA Cup shock as they knocked Championship leaders Brighton out in the fourth round with a 3-1 win at Sincil Bank.

Lincoln, who beat Ipswich after a replay in round three, had to come from behind after Richie Towell put Brighton ahead on 24 minutes.

The Imps, currently top of the National League, were handed a way back into the tie on 57 minutes. Glenn Murray grappled with Robinson, and Alan Power converted the spot-kick past substitute goalkeeper Casper Ankergren, who replaced the injured Niki Maenpaa.

An own-goal from Seagulls defender Fikayo Tomori, who is on loan from Chelsea, put the non-league side in front on 62 minutes.

Robinson added a third on the break to secure Lincoln's place in the FA Cup fifth round for only the second time since losing to Glasgow Rangers in 1886-87.
