Got the next set of pictures and finally received a visit from a council worker who will be again testing samples for asbestos (they won’t act until confirmed), this means I should be hearing about the works schedule soon (and will have to find storage facilities, transport for my possessions and somewhere to stay when they seal my front room for the duration).
This is not the first time I’ve encountered asbestos in this flat, the first time (which was following some works sanctioned by a council occupational therapist), solid asbestos waste was left (I was not informed and did not know what it was), and the consequences were disastrous, since which I have been diagnosed with COPD. We have been lied to regarding the efficacy and thoroughness of the removal of dangerous asbestos waste from both private and public premises, it’s a whited sepulchre. A G.P told me; “I found a pile of asbestos waste in an airing cupboard near a hot water system once”. I asked her; “So you reported it?” She said (I could hardly believe my ears); “No (it happens all that time), it’s not my job!” She also told me that there were children in the premises. Nuff f**king said!
