Yesterday's meeting of the Norfolk and Suffolk Junior Motocross Club was interrupted when members joined protesters campaigning against a proposed quarry and landfill site.

They united with people from the villages of Hockham, Wretham and Illington in opposing the proposal by the Forestry Commission for a four-million- tonne quarry development, and subsequent landfill. It would mean the youngsters would lose their track.

A club spokesman said the proposal had come out of the blue, and they would help the villages, near Thetford, in their fight against the plans.

Objectors have set up Hawitage (Hockham and Wretham in Tandem Against Gravel Extraction) whose banners were displayed at the meeting.
