Is there more asbestos on Barnsbury estate?

• THE worries on the Barnsbury estate are continuing to grow. In the last week, the workshop area occupied by maintenance staff and caretakers was closed due to a discovery of asbestos.

What worries me is: what about the rest of the estate? Landlord Newlon Housing Trust conducted surveys in 2013 and as recently as September 2018, but residents have received no feedback.

We live on an old industrial estate and I have no doubt there is asbestos in other areas of it. Newlon should put in the millions it promised us, starting with a block-to-block asbestos check after this latest scare.
