Torrox residents protest over phone mast

MORE than 200 residents at the Generacion del 27 Urbanization between Torrox Costa and El Morche are complaining that a phone mast is causing is making people sick and causing tumours.

Over the past two months, they have begun to protest due to the increasing number of health problems they are experiencing which they believe to be directly related to the existence of a mobile phone mast just 50 metres from some of their homes. The spokesman, Jose David Ruiz, claim that families are living in fear as children and youths with healthy lifestyles have developed tumours.

They have gathered their signatures and those of around 1,000 other residents in the area which they intend to take to Torrox Town Hall to demand that a report be carried out.

They complain that it is the only mast within a residential area in the town and that the man who lives closest has suffered insomnia, headaches and extreme fatigue since it was installed. The residents explain that the is a lot of rural land in Torrox and that they understand that the mast is necessary and therefore suggest that it be moved to a more adequate and less populated area.
