Firearms officers trained by MET exposed to asbestos

Its has been confirmed by Scotland Yard that every armed police officer who has severed in London over the last 30 years has come into contact with asbestos.

Some of the buildings that have been used for firearms training between 1980 and 2007 may have contained asbestos, a deadly mineral which can cause conditions such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, pleural thickening or fibrosis up to 50 years after the initial exposure.

A large number of current and former firearms officers are now being contacted as a precaution however if you ever worked as a firearms officer and are now experiencing breathing difficulties it is essential that you contact a specialist solicitor who can assist you in obtaining the correct care at an early stage as well as the financial compensation that you deserve.
