THE long campaign against the Dovesdale Incinerator, near Blackwood, appears to be at an end after campaigners lost their Judicial Review case against the council.

However, they received confirmation at the weekend that the Judicial Review had sided with South Lanarkshire’s planners and the developer Scotgen.
