Widow wins compensation pay out for husband’s death due to asbestos

A widow has won a High Court pay out for the death of her husband after it was claimed that his fatal cancer was caused by exposure to asbestos in the 1970s. Her deceased husband said that whilst playing truancy at school, he would hide under the stage in the school hall for up to 10 hours a week, and rest his feet on pipework that was lagged with asbestos. She sued Liverpool City Council over his death, and although the council denied liability, the case was settled in her favour at the High Court in London.
