ELLABY Rd, ANSDELL VILLAS Rd, ROBY Cl, and RITHERUP LaAnxious residents from the above properties contacted us when a huge dust cloud covered the area after strong gusts of wind whipped up the substance that the local farmer was spreading on the nearby field. The pale brown powder, later to be found out to be crushed limestone, left everything in its wake with a thick coating of material. The farmer was contacted and confirmed the material and the circumstances of the dusting of his field.
Meanwhile, angry residents have contacted Environmental Health and given them a sample of the substance for them to analyse. They are quite rightly distressed and upset not knowing what was happening and have asked that they be informed in future when other substances are being spread close to their homes.
