UK action over 'toxic waste' case

A British lawyer is to bring a group action involving up to 5,000 people in Ivory Coast who claim they were injured by "toxic waste" from a UK-based firm. Martyn Day was given permission to bring the case by a High Court judge. Trafigura, which has offices in London, has denied the waste it disposed of was toxic, and has begun a libel action against Mr Day's firm.
