The widow of a man who died from the asbestos related cancer mesothelioma is appealing for former colleagues of her late husband to come forward to help her with her claim for compensation. Her husband worked at Uskmouth Power Station in the late 1950s and the early 1970s.

Edward Cox was diagnosed with the asbestos related cancer in 2006, and subsequently passed away as a result of the disease. Ann, his widow, claims that he was exposed to asbestos during his course of work, and now wants former colleagues of Eddie’s to come forward to help her prove that.

She stated: “The only time Eddie was exposed to asbestos was while he worked in various power stations including Uskmouth Power Station. Being diagnosed with mesothelioma was a huge shock to all the family, but came as a real blow to Eddie and myself.”

Part of her late husband’s job involved removal of asbestos lagging, checking valves and machinery, and working alongside other asbestos workers. His widow is now calling on former colleagues to contact her lawyer with information.
