    It would appear that a major air pollution incident has taken place in Wrexham. Is it the council or a government department’s responsibility to investigate and possibly prosecute ? Or are we just going to brush it under the carpet ? Will need a big brush though.

    Apologising simply isn’t good enough.

    They’ve apologised and said that they’re going to look into the cause of it, not sure what more they can do. Accidents will happen.

    Well that’s ok then. A danger to health to the local community, safeguards supposedly in place to ensure this type of thing could NEVER happen, but it just did. However, they’ve apologised, so everything is fine, just carry on as you were.

    Would you be saying the same thing if a similar event happened at Sellafield ?

    “I know there’s been a leak of nuclear waste which has rained down on the local community but they’ve apologised and accidents will happen……”

    Lol, hardly the same thing! Safeguards are also proportionate to the level of danger and a bit of wood dust is hardly the same as a nuclear fallout! 😂

    Well it’s not a nuclear fall-out but there was MDF contained in it, which whilst I agree is unlikely to cause any long-term harm if exposure is outside and short term, is still not good.

    HSE has guidelines here:

    So there shouldn’t be major consequences but steps should be taken to ensure an incident like this isn’t repeated. Otherwise where do you draw a line on corporate responsibility in industry?

    If a resident of Chirk had carried out a much smaller scale incident from their home that had affected neighbouring properties they would have been fined.
