Inhaling tiny fibres made by the nanotechnology industry could cause similar health problems to asbestos, say researchers.

Some are similar in shape to asbestos fibres, which have caused lung cancers such as mesothelioma.

Research on mice, published in Toxicology Sciences, suggests the longer nanofibres are more dangerous.

Nanofibres are in a range of goods, from airplane wings to tennis rackets.

Ken Donaldson, professor of respiratory toxicology at the University of Edinburgh, said: "Concern has been expressed that new kinds of nanofibres being made by nanotechnology industries might pose a risk because they have a similar shape to asbestos."
