A costly clean-up operation is under way after approx. 12 tonnes of asbestos were dumped illegally on a river bank at Byall Fen Drove.

A council spokeswoman said: “The scale and audacity of the crime is shocking.”

“We are working with our partners, including the Environment Agency, to investigate the incident, gather evidence and ensure the waste is removed as quickly as possible.

“We are committed to catching those who fly-tip in our district and would urge people to report any such activity that appears suspicious.”
