Anti-cement campaigner hit with court costs

A campaigner who failed in a bid to limit operations at Cemex’s Rugby Cement works may have to pay £88,000 in costs.

Lilian Pallikaropoulis challenged the Environment Agency over their decision to allow the factory to use more tyres as fuel, believing that people’s health would be affected.

Last year, the Environment Agency said that a House of Lords ruling showed its decision to issue Cemex with a permit to burn the tyres was correct.

Cemex have said that burning tyres to produce power for the plant leads to fewer emissions.
