Toxic shock

Greenpeace campaigners scaled Disney's London headquarters last week to protest against toxic chemicals in children's pyjamas. The charity has published a report that revealed that items such as Finding Nemo pyjamas contain products such as formaldehyde, and other chemicals so toxic they are banned from teething products. Protesters occupied the ledge in Hammersmith for 30 hours on Thursday to urge Disney to withdraw the products. Disney executives met the campaigners twice, but refused to stop using the chemicals in the colour printing process. Mark Strutt, Greenpeace toxics campaigner, said: "Disney's abject failure to do the right thing means that this campaign will continue."
