Households across Flintshire have been receiving letters this week outlining proposals for a huge carbon capture scheme that would see a pipeline built through Deeside to carry waste carbon offshore.

Phase one of the ambitious plan will be to develop a pipeline to transport CO2 away from North West and North Wales industrial areas through Deeside and to store it in depleted gas reservoirs in Liverpool Bay.
