Tragedy sister in phone mast fear

This is Blackburn

MOBILE phone chiefs want to put a mast just yards away from the shop of a woman who claims her brother died from a brain tumour caused by mobiles.

Elaine Lishman, who owns Flower Occasions, East Park Road, Blackburn, is fighting plans by Vodafone to erect a mast on land belonging to Ibbotsons Joiners, behind the Hole I'th Wall pub, Shear Brow.

Mrs Lishman, who last year successfully opposed plans by the company to erect a mast across the road from her shop, is supporting a petition started by residents in nearby St James Road.

Her brother Michael Fox, son of former Rovers chairman Bill Fox, died aged 40 in Manchester's Hope Hospital in 1999 after developing a brain tumour.

The hospital's neurologist said the tumour may have been caused by Michael's mobile phone use after Mrs Lishman told how he had been using them since they were first went on sale in the 1980s.

She said: "The original mast was going to be on the pavement just over the road from my shop but we stopped that one and we will oppose this. If Vodafone tell me there is no health issue then so be it, but I watched my brother die of a brain tumour which doctors said could have been caused by using a mobile phone and makes me wonder how safe this mast will be.

"We have thousands of college children in this area and they are the brains of the future and their health should not be put at any risk."

Kevin McMahon, principal of St Mary's College, Shear Brow, said: "It is not appropriate to have these things placed in areas that are so full of young people because there is so much unresolved when it comes to the health issues.

"They want to put this mast next to an over-subscribed college that also has a nursery for very small children."

Martin Gregson, of St James Road, who started the petition, said: "It seems ridiculous to me that we are going to have a 12m-high mast at the back of residential property, so close to a college full of young people."

Jane Frapwell, of Vodafone, said: "We are about to write to local residents about the proposal and we won't apply for planning permission until all those letters have gone out and we have allowed time for responses to those letters."

She said the mast was necessary to improve the quality of services Vodafone offers in the area.

She added: "The formal guidelines that we comply with have the formal backing of the World Health Organisation. They say there is no evidence of any effects on people's health (from mobile phone masts)."

Omega this is not true. See under:

Mark Tomlinson, of Ibbotson's Joiners, declined to comment.
