Gosport War Memorial Hospital deaths: Inquiry set to report back in June

Have your say

THE widow of a Portsmouth factory worker who died from an asbestos-related disease is asking his former colleagues for help.

Anthony Felton, 63, was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, in September 2010, and died seven months later.

Mr Felton worked as a quality inspector for Plessey, in Titchfield, between 1975 and 1976, and again from 1981 to 1982.

Asbestos lawyers at Irwin Mitchell say Mr Felton was never warned he was coming into contact with asbestos.

His widow Jean is appealing to her husband’s former colleagues to get in touch as she believes they may hold evidence as to how he came into contact with asbestos fibres.

She said: ‘I hope people get in touch because we have so many questions and any bit of information, no matter how small, might piece together what went wrong and bring about some justice for his death.’
