Statement regarding Shawforth Moorland

Published March 18, 2016 at 16:31

Rossendale Council is carefully monitoring the situation. We have carried out several tests at the site. The tests showed levels significantly lower than ones that would constitute a public health risk. We have now taken further samples on March 16 and are awaiting the results.

We fully understand public concerns over this issue but we have to fully assess the situation before deciding what to do further. We have looked into the reports of sickness at the local school but we have been unable to substantiate a link between this site and the children’s sickness. We have given advice to the school concerned. We happy to speak to anyone who has concerns though. Please ring on 01706 252565.
