 The first criminal charges have been filed in the US state of Michigan in connection with the contamination of the water supply with lead in the city of Flint. Three officials have been charged with offences including tampering with evidence, conspiracy and misconduct in office, Gary O'Donoghue reports.  “In 2014, the city of Flint switched its water supply from Lake Huron to the local Flint river in a money saving exercise. Immediately, residents began complaining about the quality. It took 18 months for the Michigan authorities to acknowledge the problems. Leading to accusations, the residents of Flint were ignored because they are largely poor and black. But state and local officials face a number of investigations and Michigans attorney general Bill Schuette has promised to leave no stone unturned and more charges are expected shortly.”
