Kevin Blake, deputy leader of Basildon Council, said: “Only complete and utter scum would do something like this.
“Not only is it an obscene thing to do but it’s putting lives at risk because there is disturbed asbestos among the rubble.
“What if a child came into contact with it?
“I’m sure the scum who left it has no regard or care for the lives of residents or the people clearing the waste.
“This could easily cost in the region of £20,000 to clear up because the council will have to hire a specialist firm to clear it.
“The Government needs to change the law to give councils more power over these situations.”
Why? It takes you bloody forever to use the ones you have!
This is the third large-scale flytip to mystify the authorities in the past month.
On Friday, May 12 piles of old furniture, discarded food and human waste were dumped in bushes outside the Four Seasons pub, in Victoria Road, Laindon.
It came two weeks after a total of 40 tonnes of rubbish, including human excrement, was found strewn in Westmayne, opposite St Nicholas’s Church. The clean up cost Basildon Council £7,000.
A mystery, wrapped in a puzzle, inside an enigma. If only there was some link to…
The rubbish appeared after travellers, who were on the green belt site near the 13th century church for less than a week, were evicted.
