A LEGAL challenge has been launched to stop the controversial fluoridation of Hampshire tap water, the Daily Echo can reveal.
Lawyers acting for a Hampshire woman have launched a claim for a judicial review at London's Royal Courts of Justice into the way health chiefs backed the scheme.
They say that fluoridation should not have been approved because of the weight of public opinion against the plan.
But health bosses insist they have done nothing wrong and have set aside £400,000 to fight the case.If the legal challenge is successful it could mean plans to add fluoride to the water supplies of almost 200,000 homes are scrapped.
