BREAKING NEWS: Campaigners fighting against Augean radioactive waste decision lose at Court of Appeal

CAMPAIGNERS fighting a decision to dump low-level radioactive waste in King’s Cliffe have lost their latest battle at the Court of Appeal.

The Secretary of State granted planning permission for Augean to dump low-level radioactive waste at its site in Stamford Road.

That decision was upheld by the High Court so protesters opposed to the plans took their battle to the Court of Appeal.

It was heard in the appeal courts yesterday (Tuesday) and campaigners were disappointed to hear they had lost their case at lunchtime today (Wednesday).

They had staged two protests against the plans, including one on Saturday, January 7, when Augean started dumping the waste.
