More than 200 teachers died from asbestos – and kids are at risk in classroom – Mirror Online

More than 200 teachers have died in the past 10 years from the effects of being exposed to asbestos.

And for each teacher fatality, nine ex-pupils can also be expected to fall victim to the silent killer, a study claims – an average of almost 200 per year.

Breathing in asbestos fibres can lead to mesothelioma, a cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs and can strike years or even decades after exposure.
