Yorkshire Water is to use vegetable oil to power incinerators. Being carbon dioxide neutral the oil is environmentally friendly, it says, and the move will save tens of thousands of pounds in fuel charges. The oil, from two processing plants in the region, has been successfully tested at Sheffield University and is set to go on trial at the Calder Valley incinerator.

Fitzpatrick has been awarded the first stage of pre-construction works in Trafalgar Square, as part of the Transport for London World Squares for All programme. The project comprises urban regeneration and highway works including paving, traffic signalling, carriageway alterations and resurfacing, street lighting and stonework.
