Check the grounding wire on the mic itself, this is where the problem lies, cause when you touch it, the grounding follows an alternative path through your body, that is why the humming increases when you touch it.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards

Hum which is made worse on touching top half of mic. clearly an earthing matter. engineer has checked bottom half but does not know how to get into top half.

I have the same mic, same problem. I disassemled the mic, put it back together, and the problem fixed itself. I can't explain exactly why.
To disassemble the top part of mic, turn the 2 plastic posts inside the mic clockwise.
