Has anyone considered that when the site of the Timber Yard is demolished;a huge area of Asbestos roofing will be exposed to the wind asd each sheet is removed.how many unwitting souls will breath in the air of pollution to go on in later years to Respitary problems-perhaps even die as a result?

If that's all you have to worry about, good for you.

Yeah but the wind blows from that site towards Landport so no great losses are expected.

Ed, what a vile piece of sh1t you are. Shame you can't say that to people's faces really.

With today's Health and safety regulations there will probably be specialist contractors involved (at great expense) in the removal and disposal of the roof.

I could be wrong but i am pretty sure that roofing asbestos is very much different from the serious stuff that is used elsewhere. Its a kind of cement, incorporating asbestos fibres. I'm not worried, the stuff is absolutely everwhere.

Yeah true about it being Cement bound fibres but you only need one fibre to kill you-its not the volume of the stuff.You cant tell me that no Roofing Sheets will break during their removal.

You need a lot more than one fibre of brown asbestos to get mesothelioma. Relax, the demolition will be governed by the Control of Asbestos Regs. 2012 and others.

You are more likely to die of stress worrying about something that is yet to happen, than from the careful removal of low risk asbestos sheeting. Thank goodness for expensive healthy and safety legislation eh Jim? Real H&S requirements(rather than silly made up apocryphal ones) keep us all...... healthy and safe. Unlike the good old days when this roof was made, and put up. Ed Can Do, the thing about offensive humour, is that it also needs to be funny. I love offensive humour, so do keep having a go.
