DRIVERS on their way to a new incinerator in the Vale ‘would be sacked’ if they were caught using narrow country lanes, a meeting has hard.

On Tuesday John Plant, director at energy firm WRG, said drivers serving the controversial plant in Calvert would be monitored.

He said fears over heavy vehicles on narrow lanes were far of the mark, stating: “Drivers in breach of approved routes will be disciplined, sacked.”

Mr Plant also hit out at ‘misleading’ claims over the health dangers of the plant, which could be given planning permission on Friday, saying: “We will publish on the internet data on the performance of the Greatmoor so residents can be confident it is operating safely.”

Also speaking on behalf of the project was TV science star Johnny Ball, who told councillors: “In terms of energy for waste, we must move in that direction.”
