ASBESTOS

There are calls today for asbestos to be removed from all schools in Kent . It follows the discovery by the BBC that 90% of state schools in the county contain the substance. Teaching unions say that not enough is being done to protect staff and pupils, but the Health and Safety Executive says it is safe as long as it isn't disturbed. Matthew Bradford joined Dom this morning and spoke of his mother Elizabeth a teacher who died in November from Mesothelioma.
