More than 224 teachers have died of mesothelioma in the period between 2003 and 2012. We are now also seeing an increasing number of younger people diagnosed with mesothelioma and with no known occupational exposure. Sarah Bowman aged 49 was compensated when Brent Council settled her claim for mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos as a pupil at two schools in Brent. A 33 year old Devon woman is pursuing a claim that her mesothelioma was caused by asbestos exposure at school during maintenance works carried out.
