Bosses at landfill site emitting ‘life-shortening’ noxious smells ordered to make changes

Lawyers said Walleys Quarry in Staffordshire was creating a “public health emergency”.

In a judgment on Thursday, Mr Justice Fordham ruled that “real and significant change” was required “as a matter of urgency”.
