"CHANTING protesters blocked the entrance to Haringey Civic Centre last night in the latest demonstration against plans for a new waste plant.

"More than 200 members of the Pinkham Way Alliance campaign group braved heavy rain to hold placards and shout outside the building, in High Road, Wood Green, as councillors considered a Liberal Democrat motion to oppose the proposed site in New Southgate.

"Alliance member Alaistair Sherriff said:
“We feel that because of the traffic it's going to bring to the area and the pollution the trucks will create, it will be a huge problem. We are not a political organisation at all, and we want cross-party support on this. We are representing the people, who through a lack of consultation, have not been given a chance to speak.”
