Early this morning I came across a couple of protesters in the process of chaining themselves through the handles of the front door to Forth ports headquarters. White shirts and ties were in great evidence as the office workers struggled to stop the protesters padlocking themselves in place. There were also a couple of guys up on the roof trying to unfurl a banner that took quite a few minutes but they got there in the end. What was a protest all about? They’re objecting to the proposed biomass plant on the grounds that it will not be using sustainable fuel and as Leither you could have added the huge upsurge in traffic due to the lorries which will be needed to remove the ash. Anyway a couple of pics for you to savour.
