A company has been given permission to generate electricity by converting methane emissions at a landfill site.

Querica Ltd can now harness the methane at the Clayton Hall site, close to Dawson Lane, Clayton-le-Woods.

Waste has been transported to the former sand quarry for decades.

The plans included a landfill gas generator, offices and a stores building on the site.

Methane from the site is currently burned off, which causes some air emissions.
