Birmingham City Council may have to spend up to £4m digging up buried refuse from two former dumps and removing it from two city suburbs, the Birmingham Post reports (15 January, p5).

Residents are worried that the rubbish near their homes is causing explosive methane gas to seep to the surface.

On Friday the city's environmental health committee approved schemes of over £800,000 to dig trenches to stop gas seeping underground into buildings adjoining the sites and to allow the gas to escape into the air.
