Villagers are blaming a phone mast for a series of cancer deaths and health problems
Auteur: Laura Holland
VILLAGERS are living in fear of a mobile phone mast they blame for a series of cancer deaths and other health problems.
Eight people living in Buckler, Cornwall, have died since the mast was erected in 2007.
The residents also fear for children and grandchildren who come to visit because of the health risks posed by the 33ft mast, which stands within metres of the 75 homes.
“We are living in a cancer cluster,” said Peter Lewis, 68, who set up Buckler Village Mast Sanity Group. “More than 50 per cent of the residents said they have had serious health problems since the mast was put up. Then people started dying from cancer. Two more have just been diagnosed and one of those is terminally ill.
“I have severe vertigo, which my doctor can’t explain. I don’t sleep for more than three hours every night and my wife is the same. If you look down the street at 3am everyone’s lights are on because we can’t sleep.”
June Parsons, who lost her husband Dave, 73, to prostate cancer a year ago believes the mast is to blame. “He did have a few heart problems, but apart from those he was marvellous,” said Mrs Parsons, 78, who has suffered unexplained blood clots on her lungs.
Terry Southcombe, 75, has been told he has three months to live after being diagnosed with bladder cancer. “It was fine until that mast went up,” he said. “For the sake of younger generations something needs to be done.”
Mobile phone firm O2 said it did not recognise any health risks from such masts. “Scientists have failed to come up with anything to suggest that mobile phones or masts present a risk to humans,” a spokesman added.
