Mywelshpool can confirm that an investigation has been launched into how soil, allegedly contaminated and from the former Smithfield site, found its way to a Shropshire dump.
 
The Environment Agency has confirmed to us this afternoon that its Midlands office is spearheading an investigation into a report that ‘materials’, believed to be soil, were found at a Shropshire site and have allegedly been tracked back to the multi-million pound Welshpool Tesco development.
 
A spokesperson said: “We are currently investigating this matter and will be unable to give any further details at this time.”
 
The giant Tesco supermarket was opened in February on the site of the former Smithfield which had been home to one of Europe’s largest livestock markets for decades. The market is now held at Welshpool Livestock Sales on the edge of town.
 
Tesco has been contacted for comment.
