Phone mast concerns investigated in Sark

Related Stories

Sark's Public Health Committee has launched an investigation into possible links between recent health issues and phone masts in the island.

It comes after a consultant who treated two young people for a rare form of cancer said it was unusual to see two such cases in such a small area.

This led to some islanders calling for a study into the impact of phone masts.

Committee chairman David Melling said there was no evidence of a link, but it had a responsibility to investigate.

He said the individual radiation output of each mast was monitored by the regulator, but the new survey would look at their cumulative effect.
