Did you work with John?

By John Lavery

Law firm Hugh James is seeking to make contact with former work colleagues of the late John Moore.

He was born in 1936 and lived in the Spalding area his entire life.

After leaving school at the age of roughly 14, John started work straight away.

Whilst little detail is known of his employment history, what is known is that he went into the plumbing trade and worked for a number of companies in the Spalding area, possibly from as early as 1950 onwards.

John died on May 26, 2016 from mesothelioma, an aggressive type of asbestos-related cancer.

Following his untimely death John’s son, Michael Moore, instructed specialist asbestos solicitors at Hugh James to investigate whether and, if so how, his father came into contact with the hazardous material, asbestos.

Former colleagues that knew John Moore are urged to get in touch with Hugh James by calling Hayley Hawkins on 029 2078 5691.

Speaking about the witness appeal Ms Hawkins, a specialist asbestos claims solicitor at the law firm, said: “From the information we have we believe that John Moore could potentially have been exposed to asbestos during his employment with a Spalding business.

“We are now trying to help the Moore family find former colleagues who worked with John from 1950 onwards so we can gather further information into where he may have been exposed to asbestos.”
