Family's £250,000 award after asbestos death

A family have been awarded almost £250,000 after their mother died from second-hand exposure to asbestos.

Adrienne Sweeney contracted mesothelioma after coming into contact with dust from her husband's overalls.

William Sweeney, from Paisley, worked at the Babcock & Wilcox boiler-making factory in Renfrew in the 1960s.

Daughter Kay Gibson said the compensation gave her mother "the justice she wanted in life".
