The school said beetles hatching from the tip "took over the area"

A lorry driver who dumped 100 tonnes of stinking waste on a special school's car park, landing it with a £22,000 bill, has been jailed for 12 months.

Francis Heaton, 61, admitted leaving the pile at Oldham's Kingfisher Special School, in April 2018.

The school's principal said the smell from "the rotting tip was unbearable".

Judge Paul Lawton told Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court that Heaton, of Gorton, had committed a "deliberate, selfish and unlawful act".

Just wish I had the time and patience to do something as interesting and beneficial for other people, not just for now but for years to come your site and others like it will help people find their history, as Bob Marley once said  Don't forget your history nor your destiny .

Thank you for your help. ( sorry I forgot to put your name.  I apologise )


I shown my husband the photo .and he said that's style prison.  I didn't know it was now a prison.
It's amazing. The building  my great grans half brothers was in is now a prison .


I wonder if it's changed much from when they was there. Except for the prison guards 😊


Thank you again for helping me out with this. 
Much appreciated.
