PROTESTORS congregated at County Hall last week to intercept politicians who were attending a seminar related to LNG safety.

The group of six people handed the AMs and MPs a list of questions which they wanted answered.

Gene Harris, of Pembroke Dock, said: "We've been through court three times asking for a judicial review but it was turned down. We need to know what's going on."

Shelagh O'Keefe, of Milford Haven, said the cuts in overnight firefighters in Haverfordwest and Pembroke Dock increased their concerns.

She said: "Obviously the workers need safety, but what about the old, the sick, the blind? How will they be reassured, be helped?

"The children here need protection from what could be so catastrophic - we need a proper plan," she added.

AMs and MPs including Angela Burns, south Pembrokeshire MP Nick Ainger and mid and west Wales AM, Joyce Watson, attended the seminar for county councillors on LNG emergency planning arrangements and said they were delighted to receive questions regarding safety and emergency plans.

The seminar, which was closed to the public, included presentations by members of the emergency services, including Dyfed-Powys Police chief superintendent, Dean Richards, fire and rescue commander, Nick Webley, and the county council's civil contingencies manager, Richard Brown.

A council spokesman said that several members of the audience said they had been reassured by what they had heard on the day.
