Grandmother 'worried' over Cwmfelinfach waste emissions

A health official has raised concerns that emissions from a planned waste processing plant in Caerphilly county may affect residents' health.

The rare weather phenomenon of temperature inversion could trap the plant's emissions over Cwmfelinfach, an Aneurin Bevan health board boss said.

Residents raised the issue before Caerphilly council approved the plans in December.

The firm involved said emissions would have a "negligible" impact.

Cwmfelinfach resident Wendy Jenkins told BBC Wales' Jordan Davies she is "worried" about the effect it could have on her grandchildren's health.
