Dangerous asbestos stolen by thieves
MEMBERS of the public are being warned to be on their guard after thieves stole a container full of asbestos.
Crooks stole the box, containing the dangerous material, from a vehicle parked in Killara Church Road in Corringham between 4pm this Monday and 6.15am Tuesday.
The box is a Safety Industries Negative Pressure Unit which has been used in the professional removal of asbestos.
If the box remains closed it does not pose a risk but if it is opened or damaged it may release the asbestos.
The box is black, plastic, has the number 100508 etched on the top and the name Safety Industries written on the side.
If anyone spots it they should dial 999 for police.
