Quarry battle call to arms

Campaigners fighting plans for a huge quarry on the outskirts of Chorley are planning a week of protest in the run-up to a crucial inquiry.

Residents in Euxton have fought a long battle against plans by construction giant Tarmac to quarry for millions of tonnes of sand and gravel from a site between Runshaw Lane and Dawbers Lane.

The lifespan of the quarry would be at least 15 years but villagers say it will cause pollution and result in traffic chaos.
