Northumberland widow's battle for asbestos compensation

Help

People who contracted cancer related to asbestos dust after working in industrial plants - and the families some have left behind - are struggling for compensation because employers' insurance records cannot be traced.

The last Labour government agreed to tackle the problem, but Liz Bradshaw from Northumberland explained the battle on behalf of her husband who died last year.

Luke Walton, for the Sunday Politics, also spoke to solicitor Roger Maddocks and Nick Starling from the Association of British Insurers.
