Welcome back to our new podcast series, The Best of Rebel Radio. In this episode, we’re re-sharing an incredibly important story about the first person in the UK to officially die from climate change.

7-year-old Zane Gbangbola died after flood water carried the fatally toxic chemical hydrogen cyanide from a nearby landfill site into his home in Surrey. A Ministry of Defense whistleblower revealed it, but the government continues to deny it. Zane’s family continues to fight for the whole story to be told. How can we get justice for the UK’s first victim of climate change?

Plus, we hear from Lola Perrin – cofounder of XR artists – on how Extinction Rebellion is supporting Zane’s parents, Kye and Nicole, in their fight for justice. To find out more and to help the campaign, visit
