Poi­sons ‘found in soil near Gren­fell Tower’

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

SOIL tests around Gren­fell Tower have re­vealed tox­ins that could af­fect lo­cal res­i­dents, a sci­en­tist has found.

Pro­fes­sor Anna Stec is re­ported to have dis­cov­ered “huge con­cen­tra­tions” of po­ten­tial car­cino­gens in soil and dust. The pro­fes­sor in fire chem­istry and tox­i­c­ity at the Univer­sity of Cen­tral Lan­cashire is an ex­pert wit­ness for the Gren­fell In­quiry.

Prof Stec took sam­ples from lo­ca­tions al­most a mile away from the tower and says fur­ther tests are now needed.
