The owner of land off the Millennium Walk in has warned families over asbestos after waste was dumped last week.

Alan Malik is now in talks with police after piles of the potentially harmful waste was dumped down Purlieu Lane near Kenilworth Castle.

The lane, which forms part of the Millennium Walk, was entered by offenders sometime last week when the waste was left - leaving Alan with a bill of up to £1,000 to clear up.

“I am outraged that someone could dump such waste where families pass close by on a daily basis mindful of the fact that they could be subjected to the side effects of asbestos,” he said.

Anybody who recognises the waste, or has information, contact Alan via email or the police on 101.
