Drax Power Station is worst polluter in county

Drax Power Station is worst polluter in county

5:30am 29th September 2009

Selby is the worst polluter in the  country when it comes to testing for Nitrogen Oxides.

The latest figures from DEFRA show, Drax Power releases a massive 53 million kilograms into the atmosphere.

That's in comparison to 2 hundred and 60 kilograms for Nestle in York - and just over a hundred thousand for Viking UK Gas in Malton.

This not only contributes to global warming but also dramatically effects our air quality.
