Leading Aircraftman – Asbestos Veterans – Mesothelioma Death
Inquest finds thatNormandy veteran James Peacock died from mesothelioma
10:36am Thursday 6th August 2009
James Peacock during his service in the Second World War
A D-DAY veteran who landed on the beaches ofNormandy was killed by microscopic particles of asbestos, an inquest has heard.
James Peacock, 86, ofNorthfield Road in Pocklington, died on July 2 of last year ofmesothelioma.
York coroner Donald Coverdale heard Mr Peacock, a former farmer, began work in 1968 for a builders’ merchants in Northallerton called Henry Foster Building Products, which later became Ferguson Industrial Holdings.
In a statement written in hospital before his death Mr Peacock said: “We used to take delivery of asbestos sheets measuring 8ft by 4ft. We usually had to get into the back of the truck to move the sheets. They were quite heavy and usually two of us would move them, but there was always quite a lot of dust.”
Mr Peacock said he recalled his overalls getting covered in asbestos dust and then taking them home to be washed.
A post-mortem examination found Mr Peacock had 25,000 mineral fibres per gram of lung tissue. While this was a relatively low result, it was enough to provide a link to mesothelioma considering the work Mr Peacock had done.
Mr Coverdale recorded Mr Peacock had died from the industrial disease mesothelioma.
Speaking after the case Jennifer McNally, Mr Peacock’s daughter, said she and her husband could have been affected by the dust as could their two daughters who would run to their grandfather while he was wearing his overalls.
She is now searching for the insurers of Ferguson Industrial Holdings, which no longer exists, to make a claim against them.
She said: “We’re pleased with the verdict because it confirms what we suspected. Mesothelioma is a timebomb ticking and lots of people were exposed to asbestos by accident.”
She said her father had served inNormandy during the Second World War as aLeading Aircraftman in the 83 Group Signals, serving alongside the writer, actor and comedian Eric Sykes.
Allowing parents to set up independent ‘free schools’ with public money is one of the new Government’s flagship policies. Further details are expected later this week. One group of parents in Holgate are eager to find out more. STEPHEN LEWIS reports.
IT was comfortable enough but the result should have been more comprehensive.
