Mystery glitter makes couple's life hell

GREG and Betty Kingston-Lee are desperate for answers.

The couple, who live at the Gemfields, claim a substance that looks like glitter is taking a toll on their health, emotional and financial state and they are still clueless to know what it is.

The substance settles on surfaces in their home which they have renovated in an effort to eradicate the unknown substance.

Mr Kingston-Lee said the problems started about three years ago and Mrs Kingston-Lee has been in agony since, explaining the substance gets in her clothes, on her skin and in her eyes and hurts.

The couple said they have had tests conducted by Intertek and a qualified occupational hygienist which has not provided conclusive answers for them.

"If someone can collect this stuff and have them analysed, maybe then we can fix it,” Mr Kingston-Lee said.

Hairdresser Kerry Hayes inspected Mrs Kingston-Lee's scalp with the De Lorenzo Trico machine that magnifies everything by 200 per cent and could see the substance the couple spoke of.

The couple said they were open to suggestions, to contact them call 0409 812 464.
