Councillors drop incinerator plan
Plans to build a new large incinerator in Warwickshire have been scrapped.

The county council's ruling cabinet has voted for more of the county's waste to be incinerated in Coventry and Staffordshire.

The new plan, which is expected to save taxpayers' money, was agreed by councillors on Thursday evening.

Rubbish will instead be taken to an incinerator in Whitley, Coventry, which council leaders said had the capacity to take on more rubbish.

The council's environment spokesman Martin Heatley said the original plans for the new incinerator, which had been expected to cost 100m, would not be needed.
