Illegal dumping inquiry at store

Trago Mills
The Trago Mills site also includes leisure facilities

The suspected illegal dumping of waste at a Devon discount department store is being investigated by The Environment Agency.

A spokesman said the incident at Trago Mills, in Newton Abbott, was part of an "ongoing investigation".

He did not specify what type of waste is thought to have been dumped.

Trago Mills, which also has outlets in Cornwall and Wales, said it was working with the agency to assist the inquiry into the waste.

Andrew Nunn, Trago Mills Group business director, said: "There has been a reported incident which the Environment Agency are investigating.

"We are working with them and shall give them every assistance that we possibly can."

As well as the store, the 100-acre site off the A38 has leisure facilities, including a steam railway, go-karts, skating rink, animal park and picnic area.
