On one of the hottest days of the year local Peterborough residents in Cardea, Stanground, Fletton, Yaxley, and Park Farm are having to close doors and shut windows as Hanson Brickworks (now Forterra PLC) belches carcinogenic dioxins into the atmosphere at lunchtime today when your infants are outside in the playground..... Are Forterra PLC stakeholders aware of this? They should be told.
|Not so sweet smell of success as the Forterra PLC brickworks turns the clock back in environmental terms|

If you live in Cardea, Stanground, Park Farm, Fletton and Yaxley You'll have experienced yet another spell of carcinogenic and dioxin laden rubbish burning by the old Hanson (now called Forterra PLC ) brickworks. It seems their chimney stack 'scrubbers' are not working.
The current smell started at around 10 am this morning Tuesday 18th July 2017 and it is really bad still going strong at 12:30pm! Windows and doors had to be closed, even though it is sunny and 28 degrees outside! Bear in mind we now have several more infant and primary schools in the area not to mention an Academy. The residential population has dramatically grown over the last few years.
The effects today were so acrid that it caught the back of your throat, a bit like the muck generated and released into the atmosphere by the Swedt Chemical Works in Leipzig during the rough old days of the former GDR (German Democratic Republic) before the Berlin Wall came down!
You dear reader, will recall it was just a few days ago, we experienced the acrid smell from the brickworks. Normally it is just once, possibly twice a month, and then over weekends and bank holidays. We have raised it directly with the brickworks and local Councillors in the past, but clearly nothing has been done, to reduce the menace.
So as a public service to investors we note Forterra PLC has produced an extensive document for their shareholders including such gems as suggesting they "[Forterra PLC] continue to lead the industry in terms of standards and safety we beg to differ."
We provide below the details of the financial director, who of course would be mightily upset if the share price dived when shareholders (particularly ethical shareholders) realise that the Forterra PLC brickworks at Kings Dyke is not living up to the statements made to the Stock Exchange and churning out emissions and acrid smells from the brickworks stacks, a smell once associated by the writer, with the likes of 1960's East German Industry as experienced during the Leipzig Trade Fair.
Shareholders might like to question the Board and in particular Shatish Dasani Chief Financial Officer (Tel: 01604 707600) as he is probably the officer starving the Peterborough brickworks of funding to reduce these toxic and throat wrenching emissions.
