An architect's model of a lorry squeezing under a railway bridge has been unveiled by protesters to help fight plans for a waste incinerator.

Campaigners crammed into Downs Infants School in Ditchling Road, Brighton, in a rally against plans to build the plant near local schools.

Waste contractor Onyx wants to build a £10 million materials recovery facility and waste transfer site in Hollingdean Lane, Brighton.

It's drawing up a revised plan after Government officers put a previous application on hold. Perched on children's plastic chairs, protesters celebrated the first anniversary of the "Dump the Dump" campaign.

Speaker Gus Garside said: "We remain opposed to a single site proposal. This is close to two tower blocks with older residents, as well as schools. "The first battle's been won, but we won't give up now."

Campaigners said the facility, handling up to 200,000 tonnes of waste daily, would cause extra traffic, noise and pollution.

They said Hollingdean road would be reduced to one-way traffic under the old railway bridge when Onyx's 44-tonne juggernauts passed through every 11 minutes.

Campaigner Ed Start said: "There's no doubt about it, the traffic impact is huge."

MP David Lepper said he would do all he could to support the protesters. He said: "Nobody in their right mind would want to put vehicles of that size under that bridge."
