'Plan B' for Gloucester's waste

Gloucester City Council has voted to set up a committee to look into a 'plan B' for waste disposal in the county.

It follows a recent decision by the planning committee to reject an application to build a waste incinerator at Javelin Park.

The committee will now look at other methods of disposing household waste such as the mechanical and biological systems already used at Avonmouth in Bristol.
