Lockwood tip fire: Businesses hit out over 'wall of silence' from Kirklees Council

Group of Lockwood firms demand answers over fumes from former Hunters tip

Businesses have been left angry over a wall of silence from Kirklees Council over potentially harmful fumes from a Lockwood tip site.
Firms in and around the abandoned former Hunters tip in Queens Mill Road fear for the health of employees.
Last month the huge waste mountain burst into flames sending plumes of acrid smoke across the area.


Emergency crews told people to keep their doors and windows shut at the time – but since then there has been little advice issued, leaving local people in the dark.
Last week a group of 31 Lockwood businesses – led by Martin Adams, managing director of Wentworth Valve Components Ltd – called for answers from Kirklees over the health risk to employees.
Since the Examiner reported Mr Adams’ concerns another seven companies and organisations have joined the group.
A week on the group are still waiting for answers from the council and Mr Adams said: “We have still not received a response from the council regarding the fire and the risk it poses to our employees.
“We are dismayed at the lack of communication with local businesses regarding the fire.
