The depot is in Rye Avenue, Bexley, and sections of Preddy’s Lane at the depot’s rear have been taped off.

The asbestos was exposed when the roof lifted off.

A council spokesman said the exposed friable asbestos had been contained.

‘‘A tarp has been fastened onto the exposed area of the roof, professional asbestos removal contractors and a hygenist, who is monitoring the works, are remediating the site that will be operational by the end of the week,’’ the spokesman said.

Are you pleased with the council’s response to the asbestos threat?
