Scouts group calls for Stoke-on-Trent council action after asbestos scare

Scout leaders are calling for Stoke-on-Trent City Council to finalise the lease on their building so they can take action to stop fly-tippers.

The 67th Burslem Scout Group needs a £15,000 grant to pay for a security fence around the building.

Group leader Colin Greatbatch said talks with the council have been going on for more than four years. Now, with fly-tippers striking again by dumping a pile of white asbestos just yards from the building entrance, action needs to be taken.

Mr Greatbatch says the health risk to children should mean the lease issue is sorted out as a matter of urgency.

He said: “The fly-tipping has been going on for years. It’s usually every couple of weeks.

“Luckily I arrived early and saw the asbestos before anyone else got here. Otherwise the scouts might have started playing on it, which is obviously very dangerous.”
