A woman from the UK has died from the asbestos related cancer, mesothelioma, after a wall in her office was demolished, releasing contaminated dust and fibers into the air. The woman was diagnosed with the cancer in October of 2007 and died at the age of eight nine, and had worked in the office in question between 1972 and 1985.

The sons of Frances Davis stated that as part of her job during those years she had to send reports via a track to other offices through a hole in a wall that was filled with asbestos.

Although the wall was later demolished, Mrs Davis is said to have told her sons that there was not adequate protection to stop the dust filling her office. She was therefore exposed to high levels of the deadly dust, which eventually led to the disease that killed her.

She died in December of last year after battling with the cancer. Her sons said that although she was a very fit and active lady, she simply couldn’t beat the deadly cancer, mesothelioma, which is directly linked to long term or high level exposure to asbestos dust and fibers.
