A new report claims it is unlikely the water pollution incident that happened at Camelford in 1988 would have caused long term harm to the health of local people.
The report by the Lowermoor Subgroup of the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COT) says the short period of increased exposure to the chemicals involved in the incident was unlikely to cause "delayed or persistent harm."
