A former social club has become one of the worst fly-tipping spots in a town’s history, a council has said.
Items dumped at the Turford Social Club site in Brambles Farm, Middlesbrough, included rubbish, household waste and specialist waste such as asbestos.
A number of people believed to have been involved have been identified and an investigation has been launched.
Evidence has linked the waste to people in Stockton, Redcar and Middlesbrough, a council spokesman said.
The “dangerous and large scale mess” was found by the town’s neighbourhood wardens, he said.
