Authorities are investigating whether asbestos was transported from one area in Wales to another safely.

Mesothelioma Cancer News (Wales) – Authorities with the ACT are reportedly investigating whether asbestos moved from the Pickles Car Auction site to South Wales was transported in a safe manner. As reported by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), officials expressed concerns over the issue after the purported surfacing of photographs of the potentially dangerous toxic fibers in a drain.

As noted in the report, ACT Regulatory Services head John Quiggan, reportedly confirmed the delivery of some of the asbestos transported to the proper area. Quiggan is quoted by the ABC as stating of the matter, “We know that some material was delivered to a waste disposal place in New South Wales and how that actually occurred and what sort of vehicle and how it was covered will be a line of inquiry that we follow.”
