Grandma who died from asbestos exposure lost SEVEN relatives to same condition – Examiner Live

A great-grandmother, who died from exposure to asbestos, lost seven relatives following their exposure to the deadly insulation material.

Celia Brackenbury, 82, died in August from mesothelioma, a cancer of the lung lining most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos.

An inquest, at Wakefield Coroner’s Court earlier this month, concluded that Ms Brackenbury, from Liversedge , had died from industrial disease.

Before her death Ms Brackenbury had lost seven relatives, including a brother, uncles and a nephew, to conditions linked to asbestos, her solicitors Irwin Mitchell said.
