The daughter of a former polisher who died years after it is believed she was exposed to asbestos at work wants to hear from her mother’s former colleagues.

Elaine Metcalfe, of Rotherham, lost her mother Dorothy Scott, aged 63, after she was diagnosed with Mesothelioma in August 2009.

Mrs Metcalfe has begun a claim for compensation against her mother’s former employers and is appealing for information about her work from former colleagues. 

It is alleged Mrs Scott was exposed to asbestos while she worked for Viners Ltd from 1962 to 1965 and later at Peglers Ltd from 1965 to 1967.

During both periods of employment she polished taps and radiators.

Victoria Elves, industrial disease specialist with Barnsley-based Raleys Solicitors, who is representing Mrs Metcalfe, said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who worked with Mrs Scott during her time with Viners and Peglers or who worked as a polisher.

“Any detail, no matter how insignificant it seems, may have an impact on this case.”
