Take lead on asbestos in schools, Welsh government told

Campaigners are calling on the Welsh government to take more of a lead in addressing asbestos in schools.

Asbestos was widely used in the building industry in the 1960s and 70s but was banned in the UK in the 1990s.

Lawyer Cenric Clement-Evans told BBC Wales he wanted the government to set up an advisory group and create a Wales-wide policy.
