A mass of rubbish riddled with asbestos dumped on a quiet country lane has been shifted.
Flytippers first left waste on Grange Lane in Flockton on April 8 which caused the road to be shut off.
But tons more waste – including asbestos – was thrown next to the original pile a few days ago.
Kirklees Environmental Health officers inspected the rubbish and it was all removed this morning and the lane reopened.
A Kirklees Council spokeswoman said: “On Friday April 8 the council received a complaint about flytipped waste on Grange Lane in Flockton. Enforcement Officers attended the scene that day and recovered evidence which they are now following up with the hope of taking action against the perpetrator.
“The severity of the flytip meant that the road had to be closed by local police. The following weekend additional waste was discovered next to that already dumped which consisted of a large amount of asbestos waste.
“The council takes fly tipping very seriously and would urge anyone who witnesses it taking place to get in touch by calling 01484 221000.”
