Construction work has begun on a £45m waste-to-energy incinerator in Devon.

The plant is being built in Exeter on the Marsh Barton Trading Estate and will process waste from across east Devon.

It is expected to burn about 60,000 tonnes of waste a year and should be operational by summer 2014.

In 2011, Devon County Council announced French firm, TIRU would run the plant for the first five years.
