Barrow man died from industrial disease - inquest

INDUSTRIAL disease claimed the life of a former shipyard worker, an inquest heard yesterday.

Anthony Clarke, 66, of West Row, Barrow, died on April 18.

A post mortem found the cause of death was malignant mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure. He had also been found to have pleural plaques, thickenings of the lung lining which are strongly linked to someone having been exposed to asbestos.

Mr Clarke had worked at Vickers-Armstrong, the steelworks and other places, his wife explained.

South and East Cumbria coroner, Mr Ian Smith, recorded a verdict of death by industrial disease.
