"No danger" for people on radioactivity-scare planes

Swedes who travelled on two British Airways aeroplanes where traces of a radioactive substance were found are now being reassured that the levels were too low to have damaged their health.

The Boeing 767s were used for return flights between Stockholm and London Heathrow several times month last month and were checked after the death of the former KGB spy, Alexander Litvinenko, in the English capital last week.

He had been poisoned with the highly-toxic Polonium. The Swedish Radiation Protection Authority says now it has finally been given sufficient information from its British counterpart, it does not think the low levels of the isotope which were discovered on the aircraft can have harmed up to two thousand Swedes who had been onboard the planes.
