Toxic Trash at Devon Beauty Spot

chemical alert

A drum of highly dangerous acid has been discovered dumped in a Devon car park

Specialists in dealing with hazardous waste had to be called out to  remove the 25 litre drum of an acid mix which was found by a council civil enforcement officer near Labrador Bay between Shaldon and Maidencombe on the A379.

The acid is so toxic that even breathing the fumes is highly dangerous.
