90% of schools contain asbestos

18th March 2009

The Daily Mirror has published research which claims that almost nine out of every 10 schools is contaminated with asbestos.

The paper gathered data which originated from a request for freedom of information figures which were submitted to local authorities around the UK. Over 10 councils replied and the paper found that 2,917 out of 3,286 schools were constructed using asbestos. This could mean that over 22,000 of the 25,000 schools in the UK could be built with asbestos.
