Written by Hitmix Local News on 14 April 2021
Newcastle’s MP has again raised the issue of Walley’s Quarry landfill site in the House of Commons.
Aaron Bell says many residents are concerned for their health, both physically and mentally.
He also says the one piece of data that we have seen so far from the Environment Agency’s monitoring confirms that the World Health Organisation’s 24-hour guidelines for Hydrogen Sulphide were breached.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has agreed to meet Mr Bell and has also encouraged all the relevant authorities to tackle the problem.
