Funeral of asbestos campaigner

The funeral has been taking place of Debbie Brewer, the asbestos campaigner from Plymouth.

The 53-year-old died last week from mesothelioma - a lung cancer caused by the deadly substance.

The mother-of-three had been infected by the disease as a child after regularly cuddling her father as he returned home from work as an asbestos lagger at Devonport.
