Swansea Council's decision to refuse permission for a mobile phone mast in Gorseinon has been welcomed by Plaid Cymru AM Dai Lloyd.
Hutchinson 3G wanted to put a mast on land next to Parc y Werin, near Gorseinon Hospital.

Dr Lloyd said: "I am very pleased to hear the council's planning department has rejected this application.

"I felt that the siting of the mast, so close to Gorseinon Hospital was ridiculous, particularly given the fact the negative health effects associated with
the technology is untested in so many ways.

"I am a firm believer that these masts should not be sited in built up residential areas, and as far away from schools and hospitals as possible.
It is a relief that the application has fallen."

The application was turned down by Swansea councillors, but the mobile phone company could lodge an appeal.
