School to face fines over asbestos?

IT COST £135,000 to remove a toxic substance from Priory Community School and there may still be more to pay.

IT COST £135,000 to remove a toxic substance from Priory Community School and there may still be more to pay.

The cost mounted up at the site off Queens Way in Worle last summer after contractors disturbed asbestos.

Specialists had to be called in to get rid of the toxic substance so North Somerset Council has said it will allocate £100,000 from its emergency capital works budget towards the removal.

The Health and Safety Executive was also called in last year to inspect the school after the incident and its results have not yet been given.
