Breathnach reveals ‘near miss’ after almost crashing into dumped diesel cubes

Local TD Declan Breathnach has revealed he had a “near miss” on his way home last night after almost crashing into two cubes of diesel sludge which were abandoned at Carrickrobin in Kilkerley.

The Fianna Fáil deputy shared the above image on social media and hit out at those responsible for dumping the toxic waste.

He said: “Had a near miss on my way home tonight with 2cubes of diesel sludge discarded at Carrickrobin Kilkerley onto the roadway not only causing a danger to road users but an environmental hazard as both cubes are leaking their 2000 litres on to the puplic roadway.

“Those who commit such crime have no respect for our country nor environment.”
