Cannabis plants found near school

Have your say

dead cannabis plants were among rubbish cleared from near a primary school.

The plants and roots were found near Scholes Primary School during a clean up of Chippies Quarry, near Scholes.

Harewood Councillor Matthew Robinson and Leeds Council officers collected 50 bags of rubbish from the beauty spot. The quarry, a disused brick pit offers free fishing, but is full of litter and debris. The team used a boat and trained staff to help clear rubbish around the edge of the water and the site which is popular with anglers.

Councillor Robinson said: “It is particularly pleasing to remove dangerous plants such as the cannabis plants particularly located so close to a local primary school. I hope that Chippies Quarry will soon be a much tidier and more attractive place for local people to enjoy and we also have a plan to block the area off close to the school to prevent further fly tipping.”
