MP Douglas Chapman has joined calls for tonnes of waste to be removed from Lathalmond Commerce site, near Kelty.

The mound of rubbish has been piled up over the years and is now a ghastly eyesore for motorists driving between Kelty and Dunfermline.

The pile of rubbish consists of old carpets, waste bags, clothes and a whole heap of other things.

MP for Crossgates, Hill of Beath and Moss-side, Mr. Chapman has already written to SEPA twice about the mess and has also urged the Scottish Government Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham to take action, having written a letter to her.

He’s now calling on SEPA to find the culprits for the mess and for it to be cleaned up immediately.

Commenting, Dunfermline and West Fife MP, Mr Chapman said: “This site is an absolute disgrace and shouldn’t have been allowed to get like this in the first place. Locals have been trying for years to have it cleaned up, but with no success".

He added: “Not only is this an eye-sore for the local community, but it is a health hazard.

“Having visited the site this week I cannot imagine the number of rats and other vermin that will make this their home.

“I would like to thank Cowdenbeath MSP Annabelle Ewing and Alex Rowley MSP for their efforts to get this removed.

“I hope SEPA will hold those responsible to account and swiftly remove this, so it doesn’t become any worse or present any further hazard to the public.”
