Asbestos dust causing concern in Lower Hutt

From Morning Report, 6:45 am on 14 September 2018

Workers in a Lower Hutt suburb are angry after receiving a positive test for asbestos from dust coating their work vehicles, after a massive industrial blaze. They work down the road from the Chair Solutions building, which caught fire in July, revealing asbestos in the roof. The building's owners were supposed to be managing the asbestos, but those working nearby say it hasn't been touched since the week of the fire.
