Children face mobile ban in health scare.

CHILDREN could face curbs on using mobile phones amid fears they are at greater risk than adults from radiation.

Scientists are to urge the Government tomorrow to look at placing an age limit on the use of mobiles.

A committee will also consider recommending limits for the length and number of calls a day by kids.

A study by Sir William Stewart of Tayside University is thought to have found no immediate evidence mobiles pose a health risk.

But it is expected to warn more research is needed into possible effects of radiation emmissions.

The report will anger mobile firms who expected phones to be given the all-clear.
