‘I am scared that mobile phone masts are hurting our children’

May 11 2007

A MOTHER of two has joined the campaign against mobile phone masts to protect her children.

Helen Whitehouse, 40, has already successfully opposed one mast application near her home and is eager to raise awareness of the potential dangers of masts to others.

The mum to Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Eirwg pupils Daryl, 10, and Erin, five, of Llanrumney, Cardiff, believes that a law should be passed so that masts are not erected within 500 metres of a school.

She said: “Throughout my children’s school life they will be exposed to emissions. This scares me as children are more susceptible to emissions because they have thinner skulls.”

Mrs Whitehouse is now planning on sticking posters warning of the dangers of the emissions near to the masts she is aware of and is encouraging others to do their own research.

She said: “We’re just told that emissions are within guidelines but there’s so much we don’t know about them, what do we believe?

“Until we know for definite, they should be treated with caution with more research being done.

“I’m glad I looked into it because I understand it more but it’s quite a scary thing – they’re taking over.”

Mrs Whitehouse and her neighbours have just fought off a T-Mobile application to build a mast opposite her house which would have been within 500 metres of St Cadoc’s School.

She said: “We raised all the arguments against the mast we could think. Only 10 households had been advised so we made sure others got to know about it.

“T-Mobile wrote back to say that due to our strong feelings and opposition they decided to site it on top of a hotel in Pentwyn (Cardiff) instead.”

The proposed mast would have been within 500 metres of another T-Mobile mast next to the post office on Countisbury Avenue.

Nobody objected to this mast because, Mrs Whitehouse says, the planning notice for the mast was placed on a street in Roath – a 10 minute drive away.

She said: “This didn’t give the local people any opportunity to have any input which has taken away any rights we have.”

A spokesman for T-Mobile previously said: “Everybody wants to use their mobile phones, but if we did not have the masts we would not be able to offer a service.”
