In Engeland worden tientallen politie eenheden geconfronteerd met schadeclaims van agenten die menen ziek geworden te zijn van Tetra (vergelijkbaar met het Nederlandse C-2000) en nabestaanden van een politieagent die gestorven is aan slokdarmkanker (oesophageal cancer) claimen schadevergoeding in een proefproces van vijf politiemedewerkers deze maand in Lancashire.

PC Dring's family claim his radio caused his fatal cancer

Auteur: Andrea Perry

DOZENS of police forces are facing compensation claims from officers over radios they say make them ill and have been blamed by the family of one officer for his death from cancer.

Forces across the country are eagerly awaiting the pre-trial review this month of a test case being bought by five Lancashire officers at which a judge is expected to rule on expert evidence.

It is understood claims are pending against other forces over the controversial Airwave equipment police use to contact each other via their TETRA radio.

One unnamed officer diagnosed with cancer told a website: “None of my consultants or doctors has discounted Airwave as a possible cause of my cancer.”

Dr Ian Dring, whose brother Neil died of oesophageal cancer in 2004, aged 38, said the Leicestershire PC blamed the radio for his illness.

He said: “My brother was very angry. If he had survived he said he would sue them for every penny.”

Campaigners say TETRA is potentially risky because the frequency of its 17.6 hertz signal is close to the 16Hz at which a brain “loses” calcium.
