Wembley Stadium contractor fined


Wembley Stadium contractor Multiplex Construction has been fined £10,000 after pleading guilty to polluting the Wealdstone Brook. Environment Agency investigators traced a discoloured muddy discharge to sheet piling work at the stadium in March 2003. Silty water escaped into the surface drainage water and entered the brook, leaving deposits 88 times above the Environment Agency's acceptable limits.
