British Rail and Swindon Pressings

This is a settlement for the Asbestos Mesothelioma lawsuit.

Wiltshire, UK: (Apr-03-07) Frederick Allen, an ex railway worker, filed suit against his former employers British Rail and Swindon Pressings, alleging that his work there exposed him to the hazards of working with asbestos dust causing his mesothelioma. Allen, 70, worked for British Rail from July 1954 until April 1961. Over the course of his employment he worked in a number of different places where he was exposed to asbestos. Generally he worked near steam pipes that were covered in asbestos lagging which often burst or leaked. In a settlement reached, British Rail and Swindon Pressings agreed to pay Allen �128,500 as damages, preventing the case from going to trial. [GAZETTE AND HERALD: WORKER ASBESTOS]
