Several tonnes of illegally dumped waste had to be removed from a road in Farnley after it blocked access for emergency vehicles.
Clean Leeds team from Leeds City Council cleared the plasterboard, cardboard and loft insulation that had been dumped in Green Lane.
Posting on Twitter, Clean Leeds said:

The clean-up came after Wortley resident Matt Gibson tweeted:
@Clean_Leeds Please can this be dealt with urgently? Green Lane in New Farnley is a proper road that cars use and obviously it cannot be used while this is there. It's a long narrow road and impossible to turn around on. Drivers won't know it's there until it's too late. Thankyou pic.twitter.com/CFh5Rjt8Sx— Matt Gibson (@MattGibson1089) August 11, 2020
