Vince Cable lets loose at the Lib Dem Party Conference.

Twickenham MP and Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable has renewed his attack on high earners in Britain at the Lib Dem Party Conference.

Mr Cable told the Gateshead conference that government intervention should be a force for the good and he criticised the nightmare of red tape for small businesses.

He spoke of the grim legacy of broken banks which are now reluctant to take risks but he reserved his attack for fat cats and told party supporters that financial markets have failed.

He also criticised an obsession with short-term results and supported greater shareholder control over companies.

Eco Park is approved for Shepperton
Plans for a new eco park in Shepperton were given the go ahead by Surrey County Council on Friday despite fierce opposition from local residents and Spelthorne Council.

It was referred to the government for a review, but Community and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles decided in December a review was unnecessary and sent the plans back to Surrey Council.

The development at Charlton Lane will add a gasification facility and an anaerobic digester in addition to the current recycling centre.

These new processes will break down biodegradable material creating biogas which will be converted into green electricity.

Opponents believe the added facilities will increase pollution and traffic congestion in the area.

Surrey Council says it will save landfill taxes of £600,000 a month and deal with rubbish in a more environmentally friendly way.
