    Campaigners against plans for an incinerator near Darley Abbey are worried it could emit toxic fumes. 

    The company Enviro fusion applied for a temporary permit to test the thermal process of the plant which it said will be subject to 'rigorous' emissions standards. 

    If plans are given the go-ahead they plan to build the incinerator on a site it already occupies Northedge Business Park on Alfreton Road.

    There have been nearly 100 letters of objection against the plans.

    Enviro fusion said the permit it applied for is strictly temporary and it is not planning to operate a commercial waste to energy plant.

    Another worker at Linney asked her about plans for a new high speed railway line - she confirmed she's fully committed to HS2.

    On the subject of fracking she said it could be of "really significant benefit to the economy in the future".

    Sheep usually have one or two young but on a farm in Parwich, near Ashbourne, a ewe has had sextuplets - three black and three white.

    The chances of that happening are more than one in a million, according to their owner, Patricia Brindley. 

    Their mum couldn't feed such a large litter, so the weakest has been bottle-fed by Patricia.

    She said her "boxing mad" grandchildren have named him AJ after heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.

  10. Missing girl may be in Chesterfield
