Brain Scan Call after Camelford Poisoning

(Updated 3:31pm 6th March 2012)
There are calls to give brain scans to people who drank poisoned water in Camelford.
Twenty tonnes of aluminium sulphate was dumped in the wrong tank at Lowermoor more than twenty years ago.
An expert has made the call at the inquest into the death of a woman who drank the supply.
Carole Cross's family believe the contamination contributed to her death.
The inquest has resumed after a fifteen month adjournment. That was supposed to allow for more scientific research.
Twenty thousand people in north Cornwall, from Boscastle to Port Isaac, were served with the supply by the old South West Water Authority.
The coroner says he will make a ruling next week.3:31pm 6th March 2012
