Resident appeals to Department of the Environment to look into hazard created by alleged destruction of Bethesda hill

A concerned citizen is calling for an investigation into the alleged destruction of a hill in the Bethesda area and alleging that a political hopeful and his company are to blame.

The man is claiming that the hill was destroyed and, as a result, is creating a hazard for motorists – including visitors to the island – every time it rains.

He telephoned a radio programme to express his concern and frustration, and he begged the Department of the Environment to investigate the matter.

The man also complains that the area is also being used as a dumping ground for refuse.
