Infamous Waste4Fuel site in St Paul's Cray on fire once again

This Is Local London: Waste4Fuel was on fire - again Waste4Fuel was on fire - again

THE INFAMOUS Waste4Fuel recycling plant in St Paul’s Cray was on fire last night – many will be unsurprised to hear.

Two units from Sidcup were called to a blaze at the site, on Cornwall Drive, in the early hours of this morning.

Crews are reported to have brought the fire under control just before 10am today, with officers from the Environment Agency also said to been on the scene.

A London Fire Brigade spokeswoman said: “We called at 3.28am. It was similar to the previous fires.

“Around five per cent of the material was alight – there were deep-seated pockets of fire so it took a while to deal with.”

There have been over 10 fires at the plant over the last 12 months and the latest will no doubt further aggravate residents nearby.

The company has to remove all waste by May 1 following a court order.

My faults exactly... surely their licence should have been taken away months ago! Someone within the council must be receiving nice little sums of money???

It's the Environment Agency not the council - and we all know how useless they've been over the flooding.

The Newshopper should just print the times when that place ISN'T on fire. It seems it's always that way. I thought they had a deadline to remove the waste before and ignored it.

Can the local residents give up on the EA and get together and sue this company themselves?
