Major toxic waste dump
The largest ever toxic waste dump linked to diesel laundering in the UK has been uncovered at a farm in Co Armagh this morning by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
Nearly 50 tonnes of waste – the by-product of this illegal process – was removed from the site.
The illegal diesel plant is estimated to have been capable of producing 20 million litres of illicit fuel and evading around £12.5 million in taxes a year.
