Herald: "Diver Calls On Devonport Naval Base To Stop Dumping 'Toxic Sludge'"

"An application to continue dumping dredged material from Devonport Naval Base has re-ignited a campaign calling for an end to using a south west beach as the disposal area for "toxic sludge".

For years the Royal Navy has employed contractors to dredge the water around the naval base and other deep water locations in Plymouth to enable the clear passage of warships and submarines.

But in doing so, it has seen hundreds of thousands of tonnes of “toxic silt” dumped off Whitsand Bay – now a marine conservation site."
