A type of petrochemical gas may have been to blame for the death yesterday of two Neath and Port Talbot CBC workers at a sewage pumping station, reports The Western Mail (p1).

20 other people needed hospital treatment for effects of fumes from the 15ft deep sewer near Swansea Docks.

The workers had been assigned to pump out a sewage chamber in readiness for maintenance by a specialist firm. Direct services director Will Watson told the paper the men did not have breathing apparatus and it was not part of their duties to enter the chamber.
