More news, no ads


A FLYTIP thought to contain asbestos has been dumped on a rural New Forest road.

The pile was being cleared by New Forest District Council today (Wednesday), which is appealing for help to track down those responsible.

An NFDC spokesman said: "We are clearing a large flytip from Manor Road, Applemore, and our enforcement team are investigating.

"We believe the pile of rubbish dumped may contain asbestos, so this is not only costly to remove but poses a threat."

It's the latest in a spate of flytips plaguing the Forest, many of which have also contained asbestos.

Last month persistent flytipper Matthew Hunt was jailed for eight months for his offending which included three incidents in the New Forest.

If you have any information about the Applemore flytip, email the NFDC on customer.services@nfdc.gov.uk.
