Ex Section Editor of Reuters News Agency & Daily Telegraph.
Started researching Tetra because of Tetra application in the tiny
Gloucester village of Amberley. Has been fighting Tetra for 3 years.
In April 2003, I had reports that a large number of tv sets in the
small Gloucester town of Dursley had been blanked. This is how we
knew that Airwave had started testing Tetra in Gloucester.(It went
fully live in June). I visited the streets where I had been told
people were complaining that they no longer had any tv picture. AT NO
TIME DID I THEN, OR HAVE I SINCE, SUGGESTED T0 ANYBODY THAT THEY
MIGHT BE SUFFERING ANY ILL HEALTH EFFECTS FROM THE OPERATION IN DURSLEY
OF THE 3 TETRA ANTENNAE ON TOP OF THE VERY TALL I BT. BUlLDING IN THE CENTRE
OF THIS TINY TOWN WHICH IS SURROUNDED BY HILLS.
To date, over 30 people who told me they had tv trouble from that
week in April volunteered to me personally that they were suffering
conditions from then and since, which they had never experienced
before. Some people suffered 2 or 3 of these following conditions;
some suffered from just 1:
The most common condition is sudden awakening, up to half a dozen
times a night as one sufferer described it "waking up as though
you'd been given an electric shock". Other common complaints
were severe migraine headaches never experienced before; nose bleeds
never experienced before; all over skin rashes (I saw myself 3 cases
of these) exhaustion with no external cause and an uncomfortable
feeling of body warmth (heating of body tissue-only effect covered by
ICNIRP, NRPB and the World Health Organisation).
In the case of one family closest to the antennae both the mother (a
young teacher) and her daughter (aged 7) not only woke up repeatedly
but also suffered periodic hallucinations. These ranged from a
dismembered hand floating in the air; cartoon characters also
floating around; sense that there was a tight band around the bed
which had to be removed and the delusion that the sea was lapping
Together with other effects on humans living close to Tetra masts
these experiences which also include other children are a national
public health disgrace. I know of 2 other areas of Gloucester where
people living close to Tetra have reported severe health symptoms.
The government must immediately stop the running of Tetra and its
roll-out and must give proper consideration to the protection of the
Police of whom over 300 to date, in 3 Police areas, are complaining
of ill health never experienced before. And, as reported in the Daily
Telegraph, are planning civil action.
