Cornish community group vows to keep fighting Lizard ‘Super Quarry’

Community Against Dean Super Quarry campaigners. By Alison McGregorOn the UK’s wild and beautiful southern tip, a rebellion is growing. People on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula have been fighting the reopening and expansion of Dean Quarry which was mothballed in 2008.

The Ecologist published a report from me on the campaign and some of the environmental issues around it. The full article is here at their website.

One the highlights of this article for me was being able to cover something happening just a few miles from where I grew up which doesn’t happen very often!
