This comes ten years after the death of seven-year-old Zane Gbangbola when water from a contaminated landfill entered his family’s home in Surrey.

The motion was proposed by Green councillor and Green Party Women member Imogen Makepeace..

During the meeting, which was attended by Zane’s father, Kye Gbangbola, she paid tribute to the “extraordinary courage” of his parents “who are still fighting for the full truth of what happened to their beloved son”.

Imogen added that the proposed law “would go a long way towards preventing such a tragedy happening to anyone else”.
