Hungary town still shaken by toxic sludge

One year after the disaster, residents of Kolontar still coping with the environmental aftermath.

    It was one year ago that the residents of Kolontar endured the worst environmental disaster in Hungary's history.

    Ten locals were killed and 150 others injured when 1.5 million cubic metres of toxic sludge flooded into the village from a nearby factory. Now, the people of Kolontar are preparing for the threat of another disaster.
