This morning, Scottish Labour environment spokesperson Claudia Beamish has written to watchdog SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency) raising concerns over the environmental impact of flaring at the plant and the effect on the local community as well as concerns over the condition of the plant and working conditions.

Commenting, Scottish Labour environment, climate change and rural affairs spokesperson Claudia Beamish said:

“ Serious concerns exist about the environmental impact of the Mossmoran flaring and the damage it may be doing to the health, both physical and mental, of the residents of the area and the wider environment.

“So far there has been a shocking level of inaction from all parties involved and no real change has been enacted.

“The local residents are suffering from this inaction.

"I am in discussion with workers in the plant about what their concerns are in light of yesterday’s walk-out.

“Scottish Labour is clear: its time for SEPA to act, and act decisively.”

Scottish Labour MSP for the local area, Mid-Scotland and Fife, Alex Rowley said:

“For too long the residents living in the communities that surround the plant have put up with atrocious levels of light and noise pollution from the Mossmoran plant.

“Serious concerns remain around the safety of the plant and the potential health effects of the continuous flaring.

“Action must be taken and soon to assess the state of the plant and protect the wellbeing of the residents of the area.”
