Environment Agency Arrests Ten from Avonmouth Company

It seems that one of the Environment Agency’s largest investigations has resulted in the arrest of ten individuals suspected of the illegal treatment and dumping of allegedly hazardous waste e.g. heavy metals and asbestos.

These are complex and difficult allegations to defend, particularly bearing in mind the potential sentences (imprisonment/huge fines). Some of them may be strict liability offences and they will nearly always involve the instruction of experts to assess liability, damage and defence.

Environmental crime appears to be on the increase; there has been a sharp spike in the illegal dumping of tyres and illegal waste disposed of in water. In times of economic recession waste disposal/water companies etc may be tempted to cut corners.

If you are being investigated or prosecuted for such allegations contact us immediately. We have been defending these offences for many years, all over the country and at reasonable, flexible rates.
