It amazes me these so called campaigners are sprouting doom and gloom about Able UK's TERRC facility. Saying that it will be detrimental to the local population and have adverse effects. Now they are saying these fire now shows that their concerns.

This fire on the Clem was less harmful than fires at other scrap yards in the area. A few years ago a huge fire at a car scrap yard in the centre of the town created huge plumes of toxic/ harmful smoke. But these so called Friends of Hartlepool (environmental campaigners) group never spoke up at the disgust about that fire which was full of nasty elements mixed in with the smoke. That fire was about less than 200 yards away from the nearest house and about less than 500 yards away from the nearest school. But no they never battered an eyelid.

At least every scrapyard in the world has had a fire at least once in its time.
