Asbestos alert over latest pile of waste dumped in New Forest
I AM FURIOUS
On a scale of irresponsible behaviour, this latest fly tipping incident registers ten out of ten. I get so angry that anyone can be so ignorant, so uncaring about public safety and the special qualities of the New Forest that they decide to fly tip in our National Park.
Surely, somebody must know or at least have a good idea where all this asbestos roofing came from?
These people need to be identified, prosecuted, have their vehicles confiscated and given the maximum fines for participating in this environmental crime.
Please share and if there should be anyone who thinks they know where this material has come from and who fly tipped it, call the police using the 101 number.
A FLY-TIP of hazardous waste containing what appears to be asbestos was dumped in the New Forest near Burley yesterday (Sunday).

UNDERMINING RESTRICTIONS A most unexpected development…. when you look across social media and TV / Radio interviews and press articles, the politicians rebelling against government restrictions intended to slow the spread of the virus are mostly Conservative back bench MP's.

BUTTERFLY COUNT The Annual Butterfly Count received a lot of publicity this year, which is good, along with the number of people who took part in the exercise. The overall headline seems to be a reduction in most species of butterflies but (as always) the detail is much more important. Having everybody count at one…
