Fines totalling £2600 have been imposed on Brasway and Brasway (Waste Disposal) Ltd of Wednesbury, West Midlands, and four of the firm's employees, for the illegal disposal of over 500 tonnes of cyanide wastes. The defendants had pleaded guilty to charges brought under the Deposit of Poisonous Wastes Act 1972 and the Dumping at Sea Act 1974, and were sentenced after an eight-week trial at which nearly 200 witnesses were heard at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
