West Cumbria residents and wider Cumberland locals are invited to a Q&A session on Thursday, March 14 at 7pm, held at the Kirkgate in Cockermouth.

The event has been organised in light of the reintroduction of hexafluorosilicic acid into the West Cumbria water supply.

Attendees, which could include local prospective parliamentary candidates and Cumberland councillors, will have the opportunity to raise their concerns about the health, safety and effectiveness of fluoride chemicals used in the water supply.

A panel is set to provide answers comprising Joy Warren, national coordinator of Fluoride Free Alliance, David Forrest, retired scientific data analyst, Dr Ray Lowry of the British Fluoridation Society and Chairman of Penrith local Dental Committee, John Lewis.
