An inquiry into plans to build a controversial £500m waste incinerator in west Norfolk is under way in King's Lynn.

Proposed by Norfolk County Council as a way of reducing the amount of rubbish going to landfill, the plans are opposed by King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council.

Corey Wheelabrator, the consortium behind the plans, opened proceedings at the West Norfolk Professional Development Centre earlier.
