Industrial Disease Verdict At Inquest Into Battersea Power Station Asbestos Death

Mesothelioma Sufferer 'Married Days Before Passing Away'

23.07.2014

A woman who was diagnosed with mesothelioma remarried her husband just days before her death in August 2012, an inquest has heard.

Coroner Chinyere Inyama concluded that Hazel Badgery, 62, died from mesothelioma in the hearing held at West London Coroners’ Court on July 22nd. 

The court heard she was exposed to asbestos, which is the only known cause of the disease, while working at Battersea Power Station in the 1950s and 60s. She passed away days after being admitted to hospital with breathing difficulties.

It was also noted during the hearing that her father, who also worked at the facility, died from an asbestos-related disease.
