Claims:Hundreds of tyres from Ballybofey dumped in Glebe

It has been claimed that old tyres, which originated in Ballybofey, have been dumped in Glebe close to Strabane.

Local Councillor Maolíosa Mc Hugh says that residents in the Glebe are incensed that a large consignment of tyres were off-loaded in the village by a man using a tractor and trailer at the weekend.

Oficials from Strabane District Council’s Environmental Health Department are now investigating the issue.

Councillor McHugh says they are now also liaising with their counterparts in Donegal in an effort to establish the source of the tyres with a view to prosecution:
