Attn of the Exeter Coroner

Dr Elizabeth A Earland.

Dear Madam

I refer to your letter dated 5th June 2013 in which you recommended I should contact the HSE with these matters re the subject title. I agree such matters are indeed related to the HSE, but I have turned to the your office out of frustration because I have contacted the HSE without satisfaction and they have imposed a lifetime email ban against me.

I have made repeated attempts to the HSE and the appropriate oversight authorities who refuse to take this matter seriously. Hence, I urge the Coroner's Office to ensure a full investigation takes place.

I would also wish to advise you that my concerns ref the subject title are not isolated to Lightning Dangers, they include Legionaires' Disease, Weils Disease, contaminated drinking water at 6 PFI schools, Fire Hazards etc.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

I acknowledge your email dated 20th and 21st June 2013 and note what you say.

I am afraid I can do nothing further.

Yours sincerely
