Further evidence of potential cancer cluster among chemical workers

There is further evidence of a potential cancer cluster among former workers at the Staveley Chemicals plant near Chesterfield. It follows confirmation that six ex-employees died from the same rare brain cancer.

They all worked at the plant which closed down almost a decade ago. Researchers who are carrying out investigations on behalf of bereaved families say they are also now looking at two further suspected cases.

The SIX confirmed cases include close friends Martin Collis and Neville Musson. Neville, on the right, died six months ago - less than a year after Martin had passed away from the same rare brain cancer.

Former Staveley Chemicals site

The factory has long since gone. But the company which now owns the site on which it once stood, has promised to help the families get the answers they are looking for. David Hirst reports.
