A RADIATION expert who believes mobile phone masts can trigger suicide is demanding an investigation in Bridgend.
Roger Coghill has found out all 22 of the young people found hanging in the borough since January last year lived closer than average to mobile phone masts.
Mr Coghill, who sits on a Government advisory committee on mobile phone radiation, also found a greater intensity of masts near victims' homes.
He has been researching the effects of mobile phone and power line radiation for more than 25 years.
Mr Coghill's research suggests radiation from masts can trigger depression and suicide among young people.
