Injunction Sought over Incinerator

Pirate FM has learnt campaigners want an injunction to stop work on Cornwall's controversial incinerator.
It is after a judge ruled the massive waste burner at St Dennis can go ahead.
Now locals are vowing take their case to the European courts if necessary. But first they want to make sure work at the site can not continue.
Protestor Pat Blanchard said, "People have worked so hard, they have been so generous and have given so much of their time, their effort, their energy. They have raised sufficient funds to take us this far. I can't see people wanting to give up. This is too important to us.
"Because of the economic state all the environmental issues seem to have slipped way down the agenda. The environment is not separate to the economy and, at the end of the day, if we do not have fresh air to breathe where are we?"7:01am 30th March 2012
