Contamination not linked to cancer deaths

1st October 2009

A report has found that the deaths of six people who worked in a University of Manchester building at the centre of a contamination probe were a "coincidence".

All six had worked in the Rutherford Building, where scientists carried out experiments on atomic structure at the beginning of the 20th Century and concerns had been voiced that the deaths could have been caused by contamination from radioactive materials or mercury. However, an inquiry by Professor David Coggon found no link between the deaths.
