Jeanne Hill, a resident of Forest Drive East, called the Council to remove some asbestos sheeting that had been illegally dumped in her garage. At 78 years of age she was amazed when the Council insisted she single-handedly move the asbestos to another section of her garden for collection. Jeanne knew she wouldn't be able to move the sheets by herself and called her local Lib Dem Team to assist. She provided Focus Team member Amanda Connolly the necessary safety equipment for the job who got on to it straight away.
Jeanne said: "I'm grateful for the Lib Dems’ help. There's so much fly tipping in our area I think it needs to be a Council priority."
Amanda said, “The Council needs to work with the residents to deal with this problem, telling us to do their job isn’t good enough.”
