According to the Droitwich Standard, the Westacre Middle School - which has more than 350 students - has been shut for the second time since 2008 after the potentially lethal substance - which can cause health issues such as asbestosis and mesothelioma - was discovered there, possibly endangering the wellbeing of its pupils.
Therefore, a former councillor has criticised the local authority for allowing this to happen, as the problem is a reoccurrence of an issue which saw residue on the windows of its main hall being found to contain asbestos.
In an interview with the news source, Peter Pinfield stated that a repeat incident such as this is unacceptable - and could therefore result in damages claims if any attendees subsequently fall ill.
"Some three years ago, we had the major asbestos problem at the school which resulted in tens of thousands of pounds being spent to put it right," he commented.
