Former Echo man clear of anthrax.

A MERSEYSIDE man caught up in the US anthrax scare has been given the all-clear.

Bob Burns, who is originally from Walton and now lives in Florida, worked in the same American Media office as the first anthrax victim Bob Stevens, 63.

Mr Burns - a former Liverpool ECHO assistant news editor and now TV editor at the Globe - worked closely with Mr Stevens before his death.

Mr Burns and his wife Dianne, 45, and nineyear-old son Michael had to have swabs taken for anthrax spores as well as being treated with the drug Cipro. His mother Lily said: "It's been a terribly long wait but Robert was always very calm."
