Protest to take place later - to stop an asbestos landfill site being built in Somerset

A protest will take place later at Chew Valley Lake in Somerset to try to stop an asbestos landfill site being built.

It'll coincide with a re-application to use disused the Stowey Quarry for the waste. Protesters argue there's a risk to the water supply and of airborne contamination with asbestos fibres, but the local authority says any risk is minimal.
