The Corby toxic waste case was a court case decided by The Hon. Mr. Justice Akenhead at the High Court of Justice, London, on 29 July 2009 in the case of Corby Group Litigation v. Corby Borough Council [2009] EWHC 1944 (TCC). The judge found Corby Borough Council liable in negligence, public nuisance and a breach of statutory duty for its reclamation of a Corby Steelworks in the town of Corby, Northamptonshire, between 1985 and 1997. The landmark decision was historically significant as the first in the world to establish a link between atmospheric toxic waste and birth defects - all previous cases have involved water pollution - and held implications for other council reclamation programs and the methods of conducting reclamation in England and Wales.

  • Die Altlasten von Corby entstanden, weil die britische Stadt Corby seit den 1930er Jahren ein wichtiger Standort von Stahlerzeugung war. Zuletzt befanden sich vier Hochöfen und zwei Koksöfen auf dem 680 acres (275 ha) großen Gelände. Sie gehörten British Steel. Bei der Stilllegung im Jahre 1979 verloren 11.000 Beschäftigte ihre Arbeit. Der Abriss fand in den Jahren 1984 bis 1999 statt. Insbesondere wurden Böden, die Dioxin und Schwermetalle wie Cadmium, Blei und Chrom enthielten, auf offenen Lastwagen durch die Stadt transportiert. Die Kläger wurden 2009 als Opfer der Umweltbelastung anerkannt.
