AROUND 70 residents packed out a community hall last night (Wednesday) to hear the latest developments in the long-running New Barnfield incinerator saga.
The public meeting, which took place at the Hilltop Hall, in Bishops Rise, Hatfield, was chaired by borough councillor Kieran Thorpe.
It was called to give residents the latest information about the Tory-run county council's unpopular plans to build a 270,000 tonne waste incinerator in South Hatfield.
Speakers included Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps and political rivals Mike Hobday (Labour) and Paul Zukowskyj (Lib Dem).
