On an unrelated matter I had cause to look at how much small change weighs.
I found this web site.... - which easily calculates the weight / size of piles of money.
Given that we're claiming that the EA has wasted/squandered £2 million minimum on their antics at Avoncliff - it's useful I think to do the London Bus / Nelson's Column / Football Pitch comparison.
£2 million pounds:
The amount of £ 2,000,000 would have in 1 Penny Coins a weight of 712.00 t. A single stack of money with 200,000,000 Coins would be 330.00 km (205.05 miles) high und would have a volume of at least 136,257.79 litres.The volume is of course strictly speaking smaller. If you would melt the coins down, then you would have a volume of 107,016.62 litres.
So £2 million = a stack of 1p pieces that would reach up to the International Space Station - that's impressive :-)
There is a certain irony in the position of The Environment Agency issuing waste carrier's licenses when they obviously generate a considerable amount of unregulated waste themselves.
