Starting their protest just before 6am, protesters have said plans to expand an incinerator at the plant that will burn waste amounts to ‘environmental racism’.

The protest comes just three days before local councils in North London – including Enfield, Waltham Forest, Haringey, Islington, Camden and Hackney – are set to hold a meeting in which a majority vote will decide on replacing the current incinerator with a bigger one with a large waste-burning capacity.
