Asbestos Illegally Dumped Near River

Two large bags of asbestos have illegally been dumped near the River Clyst close to Sowton. It is thought the asbestos waste was dumped in November.

Fly-tipping goes on across the country and unfortunately all types of waste end up in our beauty spots. However the discarding of asbestos materials is alarming.
