It is not likely I am wrong. No doubt a portion of the 1+ meters was or could have been contaminated ground soil. I'm not sure all the waste had to be completely removed from the property (can't remember). Never the less I stand by the number. It was an enormous task.
Admittedly I was there for only a small portion of the task and then as a demonstration of "what can happen".
I'm not sure if your post is claiming it didn't happen or re-enforcing what an angler created tragedy such an event was.
Is that one cubic metre, or a layer of 1.0+ metres thick - one cubic metre I could believe but not a layer 1.0m thick.
@ Chesters - take your own spuds, I can't believe anyone uses them for bait any more, not even at Redmire.
