Inquiry into radioactive dump plan in Northamptonshire

A public inquiry has started over plans to dump low-level radioactive waste in Northamptonshire.

Augean Plc applied to dump low level radiation at a hazardous waste landfill site in Kings Cliffe.

Northamptonshire County Council officers originally backed the plan, but it was unanimously rejected by councillors in March.

The inquiry will hear an appeal by the firm.
