Ireland's national theatre The Abbey will close temporarily in order for asbestos to be removed from the venue.

Officials have reassured visitors that there is no health risk to them, but they have chosen to remove the dangerous substance to ensure the long term safety of its staff, with the building set to be closed between July 17th and September 15th.

A representative for the Abbey Theatre said: "There is no health risk whatsoever for staff or patrons, which has been confirmed by ongoing weekly air-quality tests, carried out by a specialist analytical company."

The venue has worked in close liaison with the Health and Safety Authority in order to develop a plan to carry out the work.

This news comes after the drama and health and safety industries joined forces in West Yorkshire to announce a number of productions.

Topics such as road safety and drugs and alcohol will be put under the spotlight in the events, which are partly funded by the Yorkshire branch of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).ADNFCR-2754-ID-801361044-ADNFCR
