ASBESTOS was dumped at an Isle of Wight beauty spot this week.
Three one-tonne bags of the material, which can cause the incurable industrial cancer Mesothelioma, were dumped near a lay-by on the Downs Road, overlooking Newchurch.
The fly-tipping was reported to the Isle of Wight Council, which informed Island Roads, who sent a specialist to confirm the material was asbestos.
Once it was confirmed to be asbestos, a contractor working on behalf of Island Roads removed it and had taken it for safe disposal within two hours.
