ESG press Cammell Laird over toxic grit

Questions being asked about why the Gibraltar Government has agreed to pay for the removal of this 'mountain of grit' from Cammell Laird
Environmental Safety Group have written to Mel Smith of Cammell Laird urging the proper disposal of toxic grit and asking for details of the plans for future removal of the waste.

"Now that funds amounting to half a million pounds have been made available by the Government of Gibraltar to pay for the disposal of the grit, we would very much like to know when its removal will take place," said the ESG.

In an open letter they state that they look forward to an early answer and your news of an early removal of the grit.

"A positive and reassuring reply from you will allay the concerns of all those residents who have expressed their disquiet at having this mountain of polluted grit close to their homes. We also wish to know what measures you intend to take to avoid a repetition of this episode, that is an accumulation of more grit once this lot is removed, which will necessitate another massive pay out from pubic funds to have it removed," said the ESG.
