It's been rumoured ever since the factory was demolished. Nothing seems to be happening with it.

It's being remediated by Arcadis (or something like that). The TRW/Lucas site was there for nearly a century.

I work for a metal testing, certification and inspection company and our labs test metals etc using all manner of nasties to make sure they're fit for purpose. Lucas would have done this on site. The acids and gases leach into the ground.

This is why water is pumped into the ground to dilute it to safe levels.
