James Paul claims he asked Enfield Homes to level out his back garden in the summer of 2010 as it was deemed too dangerous for his young children, but the local organisation did so with 30 tonnes of soil that was later found to contain the substance, which can cause life-threatening illnesses like asbestosis, the Enfield Independent reports.
Mr Paul submitted a complaint after spotting white rocks in the soil delivered by the body and tests revealed these were chrysotile, stones which contain asbestos.
Despite these findings, the soil remains in situ at his home - a fact the man describes as an "absolute disgrace".
"I have two young children and have not let them play in the garden because I am frightened of them being exposed to any level of asbestos whatsoever," he told the news source.
