Brierley Hill rubbish stack 'must be reduced'

A Black Country company could be stopped from operating if it fails to meet the latest deadline to reduce a 30-foot-high pile of rubbish.

RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) Limited has failed to meet five out of seven deadlines since the summer to reduce the pile, which towers over homes.

Brierley Hill residents claim the tip, made up of household rubbish, rubble and industrial refuse, is also a health hazard.

The company, which has been given until 28 February, said it needed more time. The BBC's Daniel Boettcher reports.
