A large anti-Wisbech incinerator sign will be erected in a Fenland field along the A47 at the weekend, campaigners have revealed.
Members of the WisWIN group, known as Wisbech without incineration, have said they be putting up the huge white billboard in a local farmer’s field.
The sign says ‘Health yes, incinerator, no... stop the Wisbech incinerator’ and has a small logo in the top right corner with a red line crossing through an incinerator icon.
A spokesman said: “The first poster is going up in a farmer’s field on the A47 this weekend.
“We have more available if anyone knows a farmer who would like to erect one in a prominent position.”
