An abandoned pub-restaurant has been targeted by fly-tippers.


Asbestos sheets have been left outside what was the Lime Kiln pub in Aqueduct Street in a previous life.

It became the China House restaurant and was closed down in June 2014 after repeated health and safety breaches by its owners.

The long empty building had blue sheets strewn across the pavement outside and asbestos sheets behind them.
