Work will resume today on the building of a multi-million pound incinerator in St Dennis. It comes after a legal campaign by local residents to halt its construction was thrown out by the Supreme Court last month.

Cornwall Council says a waste-burning incinerator is needed to reduce the amount of rubbish that goes to landfill.

Court of Appeal rules that a controversial incinerator can be built in the china clay village of St.Dennis

The decision overturns a hearing last year by a High Court judge which threw out the scheme. Cornwall Council says a waste-burning incinerator is needed to reduce landfill. Residents campaigning against it say they'll continue their fight.

We spoke to Lid Dem MP, Stephen Gilbert.
