Camelford Poisoning Inquiry Call
7:01am 15th March 2012
The government is urged to order a full inquiry into the Camelford water poisoning.
A coroner has ruled it is a real possibility it led to the death of a woman who drank the supply.
It happened when a delivery driver dumped twenty tonnes of aluminium sulphate in the wrong tank back in the eighties.
North Cornwall MP Dan Rogerson has demanded ministers come clean amid claims of a cover-up to pave the way for privatisation. He said, "The second great injustice during the time of water privatisation was the cover-up over the Lowermoor incident.
“People in North Cornwall will want to reflect on what the coroner has said today.
“In light of the coroner’s verdict, I have called on the government to listen and act by holding a proper inquiry into the affair. I hope that this will mark the start of a thorough investigation into the incident so that people who have been affected can finally get some answers.
“I would like to pay tribute to Carole Cross’s husband, Doug, who has worked tirelessly on behalf the people who have been affected and echo his calls for a more thorough investigation into their situation.”
