Where there's muck

A Welsh slag-heap is to be preserved as part of a heritage area. A High Court judge in London ruled that the Finger Tip - 500,000 tons of waste from the furnace of a now defunct ironworks near Merthyr Tydfil - was "an integral part of a site of worldwide significance in terms of industrial archaeology". The land's owner failed to overturn a compulsory purchase order.
