Asbestos at Cwmcarn school - report says risk less

Risks posed by asbestos which forced a school to close and led to calls for it to be demolished are much lower than previously thought, a report suggests.

An earlier study said asbestos levels at Cwmcarn High School, Caerphilly county, were a potential health hazard, and the new report looked at the potential for the transfer of asbestos fibres from ceiling voids to rooms below.

Michael Imperato, a solicitor in Cardiff, is part of a campaign group calling for an online database to be introduced so parents can check if the fibre is in schools. He spoke to Gareth Lewis on Good Morning Wales.
