A council in west Cumbria has condemned fly-tippers who dumped nearly a ton of asbestos in a lay-by. The incident happened in Cop Lane near Thornhill, and took seven members of Copeland Borough Council’s street cleaning team a day to clear it, which the council say was at the taxpayers’ expense. The authority say they would like anyone with information to come forward.
Fly-tipping is illegal, and offenders can face a fine of up to £50,000.
Asbestos is hazardous, and use of it as a building material is now banned in many countries. Inhalation of the fibres can lead to various lung conditions, including asbestosis and cancer.
