The background to this is contamination experts funded by
Stockport Council claimed the part of the site where the school was going was
not contaminated. They said there were contamination hotspots at the other end
of the site and children could be protected from them by means of prickly
bushes! It turned out after they had to prove the site was not contamination for
a public inquiry, that the entire site was contaminated with the contaminants
being lead, arsenic and brown asbestos.
