The Department of the Environment yesterday agreed to pay for an pounds 8m scheme to help clean up toxic metal discharges from the disused Wheal Jane tin mine in Cornwall. A stop-gap pumping and treatment system set up at the mine after part of it burst in January has been overwhelmed by recent heavy rainfall. The scheme will not prevent pollution this winter, but should help next year.
