Wisbech reader says incinerator would be near school
As a member of Fenland Green Party, I oppose the plans to build a mega waste incinerator on a site close to Thomas Clarkson Academy, off Algores Way.
Incinerators have been shown to pollute over a 15-mile area. Baby deaths are linked to pollution emitted by them and studies have shown higher rates of adult and childhood cancer and birth defects.
They have safety measures in place to avoid accidents, but these ignore the effect of airborne chemicals, which can cause illnesses over a long period of time.
