Caption: Asbestos warning sign marking land contaminated with asbestos dumped here during the dismantling of the power station seen. Asbestos is a material containing silicate minerals. It is used as insulation in the building industry. If the asbestos degrades and is exposed, asbestos fibres will be released into the air. These are small and can be inhaled deep into the lungs. As the body is unable to degrade them, lung damage due to asbestos (asbestosis) and lung cancers such as mesotheliomas, result. Photographed in front of Ham Hall Power Station, Coleshill, West Midlands, UK.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
