The heartbroken widow of an electrician who died from an asbestos-related illness claims he was exposed to the deadly dust at his former workplace and is taking legal action.

The family of Wheatley man Geoffrey Arnold Hoggett, who died after a nine-month battle with asbestos-related mesothelioma, believe more could have been done to protect him from the dust at two firms he worked for early in his career.

Mr Hoggett, a father-of-three, told his family before his death in November 2012 he was exposed to the deadly dust while working as an electrician at Doncaster firm Sinclair between 1946 and 1950 and later at Electrolux in Harrogate.
