The family of a man who died from an incurable form of cancer caused by asbestos are appealing for information about four of his former employers - to find out how he was exposed to the deadly dust while working as a construction worker in Sheffield and Doncaster between 1960 and 1985.

Terry Gallagher, aged 82, worked as a construction and commissioning engineer between 1960 and 1985 - for Motherwell Bridge and Engineering Co Ltd, Babcock and Wilcox Ltd, John Thompson Industrial Constructions Ltd, and for thermal insulation engineering firm Matthew Hall.

He emigrated to Canada with his second wife, Marilyn, in 1987, and she knows little of his working conditions in South Yorkshire.

His widow said: “We’re hoping that people who worked with Terry might have information about the use of asbestos where he worked. If you can help, please get in touch.”
