Tissue probe sets up helpline27th July 2007
A public helpline has been established as part of the inquiry into the removal of body tissue from nuclear workers.
A leading QC, Michael Redfern, is examining 65 reported cases that mainly involved works at the Sellafield plant in Cumbria between 1962 and 1992 with the helpline for relatives who fear tissue was taken without their consent. The focus of the inquiry is on why the samples were taken and whether next of kin were informed.
British Nuclear Group, which owns the Sellafield site, says tissue was taken for "legally correct" purposes.
