Former Echo man clear of anthrax.
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."
