Marching for Zane
By Elizabeth Baines
Today, Zane Gbangbola’s parents marched to Spelthorne Council to hand over a 15,000 strong petition demanding answers into why he died during the floods last year.
Zane’s parents think that his death was caused by a dangerous chemical from a nearby landfill site. They also think the council may have known about the risk to local residents before the floods last winter.
On what would have been Zane’s eighth birthday, nearly 100 supporters marched with his parents to the council offices, where they presented their petition to the council’s Chief Executive.
The campaign is still ongoing so if you agree that Spelthorne Council need to investigate whether there are chemicals in the area, please sign and share the petition:
