GIBRALTAR’S MEP Graham Watson has welcomed the EU’s support of his concerns over increased pollution from the CEPSA oil refinery.
It comes after the EU’s commissioner in charge of the environment insisted that ‘shortcomings presently exist for the installation.’
“I am pleased that the Commission is working with the Spanish authorities to reduce pollution levels,” said Watson.
“However, this action cannot come soon enough.
“The pollution levels and pockets of cancer in the area are concerning. I would like to see a thorough scientific analysis to ensure health is not being put at risk.”
