It takes many years or even decades for victims to notice the symptoms of asbestos related disease. It is essential for you to take advice.

Petition for asbestos research centre goes to Downing Street

CAMPAIGNERS presented a 22,000-signature petition to the Government on Wednesday demanding more funding for research into asbestos-related diseases.

For every £100 spent on cancer research just a few pence goes to mesothelioma - a fatal lung cancer linked to asbestos exposure.

Now doctors, charities, unions and MPs, backed by the Mirror's Asbestos Timebomb Campaign, want a £10million national research centre to find better treatments.
