Spelthorne Borough Council has written to the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, calling for a full independent enquiry into the death of Zane Gbangbola.

This Council is deeply concerned that the tragic events surrounding the death of 7 year old Zane Gbangbola, and the paralysing of his father have not been adequately dealt with.

The tragedy occurred during the floods of 2014 when an old waste site behind the family's house was inundated with water. We believe crucial evidence on the potentially toxic nature of the site has been ignored.

The recent claims of the dumping of toxic waste behind the house by a nearby military institution, only serves to make it more important that the truth behind this terrible incident be uncovered.

The full letter to the Secretary of State has been attached to this webpage.
