The Health & Safety Executive website has a lot of information on asbestos.
You can download leaflets here
, and there is a dedicated portion of their website dealing with the subject here
There is a discussion about the use of asbestos in Artex at item 4.7 in these minutes of the Asbestos Liaison Group
from a couple of years ago.
Basically, if you think there might be asbestos in old artex, you should get a properly licensed firm in to check it out and do the removal. HSE have an information phone line, or you can check out the list of contractors here
On the other hand, you could just skip all this stuff and speak to the experts around the corner, here: http://www.crips.co.uk/contact.html
