Angry residents have stepped up their campaign against plans to erect a second mobile phone mast in their road as a formal application is submitted to the city’s planning office.

Whitehouse Common Road resident, John De Mascio, is spearheading the drive.

"We have seen a good reaction from local people but still not as much as I would like," he said.

He now plans to drum up more support by knocking on doors and asking people to sign a petition against the mast which is planned for the junction with Rectory Road.

Retired local physicist, Dr John Walker, says there is now enough evidence to be sure of the risks.

"People who don't sign this petition are signing their own death warrants," he said.

"The Government will not fund any research into the health risks so it all has to be done voluntarily.

"But research carried out all over the world shows the effects of radiation from the masts lead to a depleted immune system, which can cause behavioural problems, depression, anxiety, cognitive and memory troubles and eventually cancer and leukaemia."

He added: "Just because it is a slow effect doesn't mean there is no effect and we are doing our future generations no favours especially when masts are put so close to schools."

Mr De Mascio called the proposals 'a disgrace'.

"There is already one mast there on the other side of the road and we have been told this one will be a 3G mast which is very strong."

He added: "It will be used to provide the emergency services with information but also for the ordinary man in the street."

Sutton Trinity Ward Councillor, David Pears is backing the residents in their campaign.

"I have written to the Council to show my opposition," he said.

"It is a horrible thing which will make the junction with Rectory Road more dangerous.

"It will also be out of character with the area - it is another hideous thing we don't want in that location.

He added: "Whilst the government won't admit it, the health implications are important, there is even a notice there warning people of the emissions.

"It is not just by chance these cancer clusters have occurred.

"The mast has got to be in the right place and this is not the right place for it."

Residents have until December 15 to express their views to the Council's planning department.
