The Health and Safety Executive is taking Drax Power Station to court on 30th November. Drax is accused of exposing employees to wood dust at its Selby plant, thereby risking their “health, safety and welfare at work”.

This comes soon after Drax was fined $2.5 million for breaching air pollution laws in it’s tree mills in the USA.

Drax’s green mask is slipping. It is time for us to rise up, speak out and protest.

The court appearance is scheduled to start at 10am and we will meet in Park Square, just across the way from the court at 9am.
