Dale Farm declared a no go zone after deadly asbestos is uncovered

The former Dale Farm traveller site has been marked as a no go area after asbestos was found on some of the bulldozed plots.

It is not yet known whether asbestos was dug up during the eviction or if it was dumped by fly-tippers afterwards. Either way, officials from the Environment Agency are urging no one to venture onto the site while an investigation is carried out.

An agency spokeswoman said: “We advised residents to stay away from the cleared area of Dale Farm as a precaution. “

When consultants visited the site to take samples they identified bonded asbestos sheeting on some plots. “

Asbestos can have health implications if broken up so people were advised to avoid any actions that might break it up or disturb it.”

Deadly asbestos panels were found dumped in a Blackpool alley

For the second time now, residents in South Shore have discovered industrial waste including asbestos sheeting dumped in the alley behind their homes by fly-tippers.

Parents were concerned that children could have come into contact with the fibres whilst playing in the alleyway.

Coun Fred Jackson, cabinet member for streets and transport for Blackpool Council, said: “All fly tipping is a crime, but this is exceptionally serious.

“It goes without saying how dangerous asbestos can be. We believe that this has been done by an organised group, and will use all methods at our disposal to catch the culprits and bring them to justice.”

Asbestos removal required after it’s found in school toilets

Staff and pupils at Portadown College are not at risk despite the recent discovery of asbestos in the school’s staff toilet block, according to the Southern Education and Library Board.

Asbestos, which remains the highest single cause of work-related deaths in the UK, was found in during refurbishment work being carried out by contractors.

The area was sealed off while an investigation was carried out and the board consulted with asbestos specialists before the actual asbestos removal job.

One source at the school said the discovery underlined the extent of the problems facing staff and pupils in a building that should have been replaced.

“The contractors were doing some work when the asbestos was discovered. Ultimately, pupils and staff weren’t at risk but it shows once again the conditions that we are having to work in,” said the source.

Asbestos removal in Grimsby required following asbestos bag found dumped

Residents in Grimsby have revealed their shock after a bag believed to contain harmful asbestos was found dumped outside their homes.

The large red bag – which carried a warning that it contained asbestos – was left inside an abandoned shopping trolley on the pavement close to Duncombe Street car park.

Asbestos removal has since been carried out, though there is no clue as to who disposed of the bag.

A resident described seeing the trolley containing the red bag being dumped sometime between 5pm and 6pm on a Tuesday.

He said: “It was a small white Ford van which had a big black phone number across the left hand side of it. The driver got out and pulled the trolley out from the back, and it tipped over. Then he just drove off. Later that night I saw it being loaded onto the back of a council van. I didn’t report it, but if I had known it was asbestos I would have done. It’s disgusting really, isn’t it? There are a lot of kids around here.”

Asbestos disposal and handling regulations amended April 2012

Less than a week ago HSE’s official Asbestos Regulations for the control and handling of this dangerous substance were amended and re-published on the HSE official website.

The latest HSE regulations have been updated to take into consideration the new European Commission’s view which was that the UK hadn’t completely implemented a full EU Directive regarding asbestos exposure (Directive 2009/148/EC).

The latest changes to legal regulations for asbestos disposal include some additional requirements regarding non-licensed work with particular emphasis on; notification of work, medical surveillance and record keeping. All other asbestos regulations remain unchanged.

For more information on asbestos regulations, asbestos removal or disposal and the efficient, cost effective, licenced services we provide then give our asbestos expert Dan (or any member of the asbestos team a call or even an email). There is nothing we don’t know about asbestos removal and asbestos disposal.

Full HSE asbestos regulations are available on

Demolition of Terry’s chocolate factory includes asbestos removal

It has been revealed that asbestos has been found during the demolition of Terry’s chocolate factory in York.

York’s chocolate-making heritage is being knocked down to make way for a proposed £165 million redevelopment of the site, though that is now in doubt.

Bulldozers have moved in to knock down non-listed buildings on the site of the former Terry’s factory onBishopthorpe Road.

The demolition was originally expected to pave the way for the start of work on a scheme to create hundreds of homes, two hotels, shops, bars and restaurants for the area.

During the work, in which the original fixtures and fittings are being stripped out, harmful asbestos was discovered.

This means lengthy asbestos removal is required to complete the job.

Asbestos removal required following dangerous football club find

Harmful asbestos has been found on land next door to a football club in Hampshire and those respo0nsible for the land have been seeking asbestos removal specialists.

It has been revealed through an investigation that an area of potential public open space beside the new home of AFC Totton is contaminated with two types of asbestos, that is proven to cause cancer.

It is thought to have been dumped on the site in Salisbury Road, Totton, by fly-tippers who illegally disposed of construction waste.

A report commissioned by council chiefs says some of the fragments and fibres found on the land are brown asbestos – one of the most dangerous forms of the substance.

The report also said: “Asbestos was detected in many locations across the site and one may presume that fly-tipping was widespread. It’s not possible to say that any part of the site is free from contamination.”

Totton and Ealing Town Council is now calling for the removal of asbestos on the land to make it safe for residents.
