Why is Asbestos Dangerous?

Asbestos is a potentially very harmful material. It is made up of fibres that can become airborne when disturbed. If inhaled, these fibres can lead to serious health issues.

Although banned in the UK in 1999, asbestos is present across millions of buildings throughout the country.
