Coal dust cloud at the terminal
A Fairlie resident has evidence of the regular coal dust clouds created at the Clydeport terminal at Hunterston.
In a letter to the Largs & Millport Weekly News, Mr David McCarthy of Castlepark Drive, Fairlie sent the accompanying picture and comments.
"Following the report by Calum Corral I attach a photo I took while out with my family some three weeks ago, walking along the beach at Fairlie.
"This is not an unusual site and I can assure you this is a regular occurrence that blights the residents of Fairlie, blackening our houses windows and health."

Good opportunity for Clydeport to explain the cause of the black cloud and what they are doing to prevent reocurrence via the columns of your good newspaper.
And also for SEPA to update us all on what they are doing to prevent these duststorms.
