ITV reported that campaigners against plans for a new multi-million pound coal mine in west Cumbria are holding a protest in Kendal. They're calling on councillors to reject permission for the scheme that they claim will harm he UK’s efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.

West Cumbria Mining wants to extract coal off the coast of St Bees, with a processing plant on the former Marchon site at Kells. They say the site would process 2.5 million tonnes of coking coal a year for the UK and European steel industry, replacing imports from the US, Canada, Columbia and Russia.
