Council contractors have been called to clear asbestos that was dumped by the entrance to a horse paddock.
Lyddington resident Malcolm Mair spotted the broken bits of roofing while going to check on his horses in a field off Main Street, between his home and Bisbrooke.
Mr Mair said: “It may well be flytipping, but it’s hazardous material which is another matter altogether.
“There are a couple of bits in the hedge and they obviously tried to throw it over the hedge.”
Mr Mair called the police and Rutland County Council. The council passed on the matter to a specialist contractor who is licensed to dispose of asbestos.
But Mr Mair said he was just thankful the gate to his paddock wasn’t open and the asbestos wasn’t dumped in the field with his horses.
