A meeting to discuss plans for underground coal gasification (UCG) in the Firth of Forth has had to be postponed.

The meeting with Mr Algy Cluff, CEO of Cluff Natural Resources - which has obtained a licence from the Scottish Government to conduct the controversial process - will now take place in December.

Councillor Tom Adams, chair of the Levenmouth Area Committee, confirmed that Mr Cluff will not be able to attend the originally planned meeting on November 27.

However on Monday, Cllr Adams confirmed that Mr Cluff is available to meet with the public on December 10.

The meeting will take place at the Fife Renewables Innovation Centre at Methil Docks between 7.00 - 9.00p.m., and guests will also get the chance to hear from Keith Leighfield, an ex director of British Coal, who now works for Cluff Natural Resources.

Cllr Adams has called for more information on UCG to be made available before the meeting, and urged as many people as possible to attend in December.
