A former builder from Colchester who contracted an asbestos-related cancer has won a landmark case. Since 2009 David Mahoney has been fighting for compensation from his insurance company after he inhaled asbestos fibres at work in the 1970s.
The insurers claimed they aren't liable because of the delay between exposure and diagnosis. But today the Supreme Court ordered them to pay up.
