Mesothelioma is known as the ‘silent killer’. It’s a cancer that lays dormant in its victims’ bodies for decades before extinguishing their life, during their golden years. But this is a cancer that could have been almost completely avoided. In this episode of The Case Files Kate Gerbeau speaks to two families who are living with the devastating effects of unwittingly working with asbestos fibres. She also speaks with Lorraine Creech, Head of Nursing at Mesothelioma UK and specialist industrial disease lawyer, Madelene Holdsworth at Slater and Gordon to explore how these tiny particles were allowed to rip such huge holes in so many lives, for so long.
