BBC News - Hungary emergency toxic sludge dam 'almost completed'

Emergency crews in Hungary have almost completed a new dam to contain further spillage from the reservoir that leaked toxic sludge earlier this month, officials say.

They say final test are being conducted on the emergency barrier.

Meanwhile the Hungarian government is preparing to take over the company at the centre of the disaster.

Eight people have died from the 4 October spill that devastated towns near Akja in the west of the country.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
