Asbestos is a soft mineral rock consisting of tiny fibres that can be released into the air when cut, damaged or deteriorated.

Breathing in air containing asbestos fibres can lead to serious illness, such as cancer of the lungs and chest - there is no cure for asbestos related disease - and all forms of asbestos can be dangerous.
