Advice sessions on radon problems

27th October 2011

Tests for the radioactive gas radon have been taking place in Aberdeenshire to help identify homes with the highest readings.

The Health Protection Agency, in a project funded by the Scottish Government, invited householders to apply for a free test for the naturally occurring gas which is present all over the UK. Thousands of people took up the offer and the HPA dispatched testing kits which were placed, left for three months and returned to the Agency for analysis.

Householders were then sent details of their radon level, what that meant and advice on what to do next.
