Al Fayed challenges Invergordon EfW; Viridor boss on Radio 4; Hull fire dying down; Sita UK warns of email fraud

Al Fayed challenges Invergordon EfW plant

Former Harrods boss Mohamed Al Fayed is appealing to the Supreme Court to block the building of  a waste incinerator in Invergordon, Scotland.

The BBC reports that Al Fayed’s company, Ross Estates, has gone to the Supreme Court to overturn the 2012 decision to grant planning permission for the project.

The Scottish government confirmed that Scottish ministers had been served with an appeal to the Supreme Court. A spokesman told the BBC: “As the legal process is ongoing, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”
