I was at work when I was alerted to a news report saying my estate was being evacuated. I found out the new estate had been built too close to a landfill site that had not been filled properly and had leaks. Houses dropped in value massively overnight. I was nursing a daughter with a brain tumour and this was an incredibly stressful time. So I was one of 700 home owners who took part in a class action after high levels of methane gas were detected in houses at Brookland Greens estate.
