Ozone Layer Most Fragile on Record

     Fears over increase in skin cancer as scientists report that 
climate change continues to destroy the earth's protection.

     The protective ozone layer over the Arctic has thinned this 
winter to the lowest levels since records began, alarming scientists 
who believed it had begun to heal.

     The increased loss of ozone allows more harmful ultraviolet light 
to reach the earth's surface, making children and outdoor enthusiasts 
such as skiers more vulnerable to skin cancer - a disease which is 
already dramatically increasing.

     Scientists yesterday reinforced the warning that people going out 
in the sun this summer should protect themselves with creams and hats.
