Government dampens asbestos fears

Port of Douglas
Concerns were raised by the union

Workers at the Isle of Man's Sea Terminal Building in Douglas have not been exposed to dangerous asbestos levels, the government says.

The Department of Transport has responded to concerns raised by the Unite Union.

Sprayed asbestos coating applied to the building when it was built was removed in the 1980s and more asbestos was removed in 2006.

The government said air test results did not show dangerous asbestos levels.
