Cwmfelinfach community's joy at waste plant refusal

Plans for a controversial waste processing plant in Caerphilly county have been refused.

Health officials and residents were worried emissions from the plant would affect people's health.

They were concerned the rare weather phenomenon of temperature inversion could trap fumes over Cwmfelinfach.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) said it was not satisfied the company had demonstrated it could operate without harming people.

Ynysddu councillor Philippa Marsden said the decision was "massive" for people power.
