Asbestos cancer kills 32-year-old

A man thought to be one of the youngest persons in the UK to contract asbestos related cancer has died. A 32-year-old father of three from Leicester, was diagnosed with mesothelioma last year. He was diagnosed with the cancer last September and given just six months to live.

At the time, he said: “I am an innocent victim. It just seems so unfair that my life will be cut short, even though I never knowingly came into contact or worked with asbestos.” Solicitors for the Welch’s are pursuing a claim for compensation against a former employer.
