'The jobs are illusory'

Paul Crossland, who is campaigning against the plant claims it's too close to the residential area.

"It's too close to the residential area. It's too close to the school. It's on a site with loads of toxins on it. And it's all been sold with that magic word in the North East: 'jobs'. The jobs are illusory. As for the local jobs, these plants require a handful of local people."

– Paul Crossland, campaigner against Biomass Plant
