The Mossmorran plant in Fife, Scotland has been shut down for a month over safety fears due to unplanned flaring. 

Plant operator ExxonMobil notified the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) of the move on Thursday, apologising for the latest incident. But residents remain unhappy at the company’s lack of engagement with the community, and the Scottish government’s failure to protect them.
