cheers for that. Was just thinking about having a hunt for this type of document for a project I am about to do. You've just saved me a lot of trouble.

I asked a lecturer at college when I was an undergraduate about the dangers of disease from digging. He told me that there was no risk at all!!
Somehow I didnt quite believe him!!
