Residents in the Somerset town of Glastonbury are campaigning for a local Wi-Fi network to be unplugged after concerns over electro-magnetic (EM) radiation.

There are fears that the unusually high number of villagers suffering from headaches, dizziness, rashes and pneumonia in recent times could be down to the wireless project, which was launched in May 2008.

Those involved in health and spiritual healing say that the "positive energy fields" in the area could be being affected.

Local resident Natalie Fee told the Telegraph: "I would like to see the masts removed. Perhaps one day that will happen and hopefully it won’t be too late.

"I thought Glastonbury was a rural town. I don’t want my son exposed to risk 24 hours a day, including at his primary school which is within the Wi-Fi zone."

The Glastonbury Why Wi-Fi Campaign has been set up to lobby for the removal of the £35,000 network.
