Decision due in toxic waste row
Residents living near a former tip are waiting to find out if they have won their fight to stop toxic waste being transported along their streets.

Developers at Michael Shanly Homes want to remove 150,000 cubic metres of poisonous landfill waste from Badnells Pit in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

But some people living nearby are worried about the plans.

Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead councillors are to vote on the proposed decontamination on Tuesday.

The site at Blackamoor Lane could become a housing development if the plans are given permission.
