A WIDOW, whose husband died from exposure to asbestos, has won substantial damages from a building company.

Brenda Clark, from Battle, has been awarded £160,000 after her husband, James, died from an asbestos-related disease in 2008.

Mr Clark worked for Anderson Construction Company in Richmond Road, Twickenham, initially as a ceiling fixer.

He installed asbestos tiles at Victoria underground station, Standard Telephone Cables Company and at the Lister Hospital, Stevenage.

His work involved drilling holes into the asbestos tiles.

At the end of the day he was often covered in asbestos dust.

In 2007 he started to suffer from health problems and was diagnosed with mesothelioma a year later at the Conquest Hospital, Hastings.
