Activist Erin Brockovich slams response to toxic US train wreck

RENOWNED American activist Erin Brockovich launched a blistering critique yesterday of the handling of a toxic train derailment in Ohio, branding it a “classic cover-up” of an environmental “disaster”.  

The US Environmental Protection Agency announced on the same day that it would ask the railroad to conduct tests in the area for highly toxic pollutants known as dioxins.
