Toxic Soil

When the 74-year-old, from Adelaide, bought the land on the corner of Whittaker and Smedley streets in the town, she was completely unaware the site had been used as a major foundry until the early 1980s.

This story is very upsetting. The moreso because the woman is old and wants to have her grand children to visit and she has been sold toxic land which no one appears to want to know about. She has had to go back to work to pay the bills for all of this. It is upsetting because in another era we might of had a story of people doing the right thing by her because it was the right thing to do. I accept the litagtion lunacy will keep mouths shut but, seriously, she is 74 and being forced to work because no one will actually help her out of this dreadful mess. I didn't think help meant you were liable. I think we can do a darn sight better than this and we should be horrified this is in our news. It's   so outrageous. I'd like to think anyone who has the power to help her will so she can just live happily and have her grand children over.
