Thanet village fights 'green' energy plant

Residents in a Kent village are objecting to plans to build an anaerobic digestion plant on farmland near their homes and the local school.

The anaerobic digestion plant proposed for St Nicholas at Wade in Thanet would ferment green waste and unwanted crops with the gas given off being used to boost national gas supplies.

But campaigner Steve McManus said people living nearby were worried about smells and noises from "a major blot on the landscape".
