More than 600 people voted for a public inquiry on planned wood-fuelled and gas-fired power stations in Sutton Bridge.

A local referendum, known as a parish poll, was held in the village yesterday (Wednesday).

Some 614 people voted for both plans to be decided at a public inquiry so all issues, including potential threats to health, can be examined.

Seven people who voted were against a public inquiry and there were two spoilt papers.

Turnout was 17.7 per cent.

Parish councillor and campaigner Jenny Rowe said it was “a good number of people to request a public inquiry”.
