Two closed refuse tips in York may have contaminated the land, posing a threat to our health and the environment.
It's believed the council owned sites, at Chapman's Pond in Dringhouses and on land at the back of Westfield Primary School in Acomb, could have become hazardous. It all as a result of landfill waste.
