A community has called for a mobile phone mast to be torn down after it emerged that 34 people living near it have caught cancer.
Worried residents fear the mast is emitting fatal doses of radiation after 14 people died and 20 other contracted the disease.
The mast was erected in a council-owned field in 1995, attached to a disused water tower, and locals said they have suffered a spate of health problems since 2001 when more antennae and dishes were added.
Wendy Baggott, 52, who lives 200 metres from the mast and leads a protest group, said her husband had contracted skin cancer twice. She said four people on her road alone have died from the disease.
