Album of anti-incinerator songs released in King’s Lynn yesterday
A group of musicians, poets and vegetable retailers opposed to the King's Lynn waste incinerator have released an album of songs expressing their views on the project.
They gathered in the Vancouver Quarter, King's Lynn yesterday to launch the 13-track CD and perform songs from it.
John Preston, 51, from Stoke Ferry, said: 'We just felt recording these songs would be a good way to articulate our dissent.
'Two thirds of the album is completely original songs and the rest are established songs with our own lyrics.
'We will raise money for the campaigners through album sales. Only 2pc of the 65,000 people who voted against the incinerator will need to buy the album to make up the �15,000 that Michael de Whalley has to pay the council after the judicial review fell through.'
A judge refused the campaign group's application for a judicial review on Thursday but group member Mr de Whalley is remaining up beat.
He attended the CD launch before going to a Christmas market, in Middleton, organised by the anti-incinerator campaigners.
