    #742: Ban for Manx Telecom mobile phone masts on the Isle of Man

    From Robert Reidlinger:

    Manx Telecom has been banned from putting up mobile phone masts in any property owned by the Public Works Committee on the island.

    The firm may also be asked to remove small mobile phone transmitters from a number of street lights in Douglas.

    The Public Works Committee is recommending they should be taken down, because of health concerns.

    It says although there is no proof of any risk, it is worried about the radiation given off by the equipment.

    Chairman of the committee Ritchie McNicholl said: “The health of the public is too important to take any chances.”
