Montgomery Liberal Democrat MP Alex Carlile has urged ministers to issue new planning guidelines after scientists claimed that they have discovered the mystery link between an increased risk of cancer and electricity cables.
The Western Mail reports (p1) that a team at Bristol University's physics department say that products produced naturally as radon gas decays can be moved in the air by electromagnetic fields and absorbed by the body through the nose throat and lungs.
Mr Carlile said last night: 'The government should advise very strongly against new planning consents in close proximity to the most powerful power lines.'
The government's radiation watchdog, the National Radiological Protection Board, said the researchers' findings were speculative and implausible, reports the Mail.
