THE NIGHT was lit up with the message “no to the incinerator” as campaigners took their fight to the skies.

Sutton Courtenay Action Group projected messages against Didcot Power Station’s cooling towers on Monday in it’s latest protest against proposals to build a waste burning facility in the village. The laser lights could be seen from surrounding villages for approximately ten minutes.

Member Callum MacKenzie said “It was seen as far as you can see the power station. The fight goes on.”

Sutton Courtenay Parish Council last month unanimously voted to object to plans for the 1bn incinerator, capable of burning 300,000 tonnes of waste a year. Oxfordshire County Council is looking at proposals to build the incinerator in either at Ardley or Sutton Courtenay.
