A South Yorkshire MP has spoken of his delight that a payment scheme to compensate sufferers of mesothelioma is now open.

Dearne MP John Healey said: “This is a disease that is closely linked to construction and heavy industry in areas like ours, and victims and their families should be fairly and rapidly compensated.

“It is a dreadful, crippling disease which is devastating for victims and their loved ones.”
