Furious villagers in Badenoch are trying to find out just who cleared dangerous asbestos from their building and dumped it near one of the area's most popular tourist attractions.

"I came across a very annoying fly tipping incident of mainly asbestos roofing which has been dumped just before this weekend," said one of the villagers this morning.

"It has been dumped in the marshland access grass lane, half a mile south of the entrance to the Kincraig Wildlife Park, close to the B9152 road."

One even supplied the map reference as NN803031.

The potentially lethal substance – latest in a growing line of fly tipping menaces being left lying around in the Highlands – was left on the railway crossing line grass track entrance to Insh marshes and could not have been dumped in a more publicly accessible area, the Strathy has been told.

"Please ask whether anybody knows of someone who has had an asbestos roof demolished in the las two weeks," said a concerned resident of nearby Kincraig.

"Hopefully we can track down who has been responsible for this abhorrent crime.

"The asbestos will need lifting along with all the other rubbish dumped.

"Don’t let fly tippers get away with this!"
