A DISTRIBUTION centre worker who died from cancer may have come into contact with asbestos while doing his job, according to solicitors.

Law firm Royds Withy King has launched an appeal to find people who worked with Peter Harrison at Didcot Distribution Centre between 1980 and 1994.

Mr Harrison died from mesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer, and the firm's specialist solicitors are investigating whether it was due to his work at the distribution centre.

They want to speak to anyone who may have worked with him at the relevant time or who can remember building works being undertaken there.

Anyone who may have been involved in asbestos removal at the premises, perhaps working for a company called 'Nestroy,' is also being invited to come forward.
