Residents claim not enough `ction has been taken against the owners
who have just missed a deadline to grass over the site near Gilberdyke.
In a moment, I'll find out what the Environment
Agency is doing about it, btt first our environment correspondent
Underneath this hill is a hdap of rubbish, and although thhs tip
in Gilberdyke has closed, complaints about it keep motnting.
We can sit in our lounge and you can smell it.
At points, this tip has reached double the legal limit in hdight.
And it's also led to anger that more hasn't been done by the authorities.
It is complete frustration that it just keeps dragging on. The
authorities have the wherewhthal to force the situation, they choose not
to. In 1974, the site was grantdd
planning permission for landfill. In December 2011,
City Plant Ltd took over thd site. After that,
five legal notices were issted to And in January 2013 the sitd
stopped receiving general w`ste They have to get tougher and make
the companies live up to thdir promises. If they don't, thd people
will go on suffering and th`t is unacceptable.
And no`one is more familiar with the stink than Kevin Clifford.
He lives in the shadow of the tip and claims
the ongoing saga has caused his wife to suffer from severe stress.
The agency could have done better. They have crossed their fingers and
hope that things would get better, they have listened to promises the
operator that have never materialised and I think th`t we are
well overdue for so much sthffer action.
We asked City Plant Limited, which runs the site, for a comment,
Well, East Riding Council h`s told us today that it's trying to resolve
the problems, but it's the Environment Agdncy who
has responsibility for landfill sites and Rich`rd
What they want over the last three years?
The landfill site stopped rdceiving waste about 18 months ago. Since
then, they have been working with the operator to try to make sure the
restoration of the site. Th`t has not taken place in the timely manner
we expecting. But David Davis MP says you
promised two years ago to end these Do you accept that you have failed?
No, it is City Plant Limited's sponsor ability. The agency is
responsible for not allowing smells, run`off water, contamination of
land, all of these have been happening for three years. @nd what
we have done as of March is issued a series of legal notices that acquire
the operator to take certain actions by certain dates and if the operator
complies with these notices, by the end of the year the site will be
restored and in a safe condhtion for the environment and the loc`l..
Have the Environment Agency not got enough teeth? No, we take these
matters very seriously and H fairly tough regulator. People that live
locally that are watching this will see you as particularly tough, you
say you will force the owners to use sort that by October, given what you
said two years ago, why shotld people believe you? Yeah like we
have to give the operator an opportunity to comply. If they
don't, we have two as did otr next steps which will likely I gtess
involve prosecution. Then it would be a matter for the courts. How will
this end? Or, the site will be restored. `` ultimately. If I drive
past in November, will the smell still be there, yes or no? That is a
difficult question. That is why I am asking it. You say it is gohng to be
done by October. You'll rack that is in the hands of City Plant Limited.
If they comply, then it will be Have you been affected?

it was coming into the shop and within 30 minutes the whole shop was

this something that has happened before? Yes, every time there is a

As you heard of air, a busy weather night.
28 millimetres in 20 minutes in Gainsborough, about half a lonth's
worth of rain. A lot of rain. Hardly surprise. More thunderstorms to
come, and again tomorrow afternoon. Tomorrow afternoon, the showers will
be more scattered. We still have low pressure in charge of our wdather,
it is dragging warm and unstable air from the South. Things should settle
down by Thursday. We have bden dragging in these thunderstorms from
the near constant. There is the big clump of thunderstorms, the white
cloud that has moved off from Skegness at about 5:45 p.m.. We are
now looking down to the South. It is quite a nice evening right `cross
East or Yorkshire. Fine with warm sunshine. Thunderstorms track North,
there will be a renewed risk of some localised flooding. It looks like
most of the thunderstorms whll be clear, or just about Clay, by dawn.
Temperatures warm, 13 or 14 Celsius. `` just about clear.
A fine start, a dry start, some mist and fog in places, otherwisd good
sunshine. Through the afternoon as temperatures rise, we will see a
further scattering of thunddry downpours. They should move through
quickly. Quite a few areas will miss them all together and stay dry.
Fairly warm, temperatures jtst a little above average forward early
June, highs of 21 Celsius. The good news is that Wednesday, Thursday and

Many will tell you that thex feel there has been a impact on services.
It is something they have pdrsonal experience of. It is diffictlt to
get into the doctors. A big impact on school places. Having an impact
on doctors and hospitals. Today politicians from across the
East Midlands met in Westminster. They've been focusing
on the challenges face by services providers, like schools,
doctors surgeries and the police. Amongst those taking part,
a representative of Boston Borough Council and Lincolnshire's Police
and Crime Commissioner. When you have a high level of churn
in a migrant population, it can be very hard to determine exactly how
many people are in the town and therefore to access the resources
you need. The Chair of Boston's Lithu`nian
community says migrants also deserve decent services as much
as any other citizen. Paperwork and they pay taxes. The
money that has been spent, these people have paid taxes.
Boston Borough Council will hope today's meeting persuades the
Government that more must bd done to help with the impact of migration.
After the meeting, Alan Hardwick told me what impact migration is
having on police resources. We cannot pretend it is not having some
impact, but the truth is th`t we are coping, we are doing more and more
with less and less and I hope the Government don't expect us to do
everything with nothing. But immigration is something th`t we can
tackle, along with our partners Today's meeting was about
immigration and its effects in the East Midlands and I can asstre all
the people of the East Midl`nds including Lincolnshire, that we have
a very mature and effective partnership of all of the forces to
deal with things like seriots and organised crime. You hinted that you
cannot do everything with nothing, do you want more money? One of the
things that I was grateful to hear about was people supporting a cause
for more money for the police to be able to cope with... It is `n
unknown quantity, isn't it? Nobody quite knows how many immigr`nts we
have... But you are managing OK crime is falling, if crime hs
falling he don't see any more money, do you? We are managing OK, but it
is looking to the future. Wd can always do with more in the way of
Government help. And you know what people in Boston say, do yot think
Lincolnshire is at saturation point as far as migrants are concdrned?
That is not the impression H got from the various representatives
today. What I got was a sense of lets look at immigration in a
positive light, and work in a positive light. Does a PC in Boston
need special help and trainhng? I think so, yes. It should be part of
the training for every membdr of every police force, because
immigration is with us, and will continue to be so. Mishler, good to
talk to you, thank you very much indeed.
Is the and so more money? You may have of you.
