Peter looks to track down ex-colleagues

A man suffering from the asbestos-related illness mesothelioma hopes former colleagues in the building trade could shed light on why he became ill.

Peter Downing, aged 68, a life-long non-smoker from Newport Pagnell, is now in constant pain, short of breath and unable to walk long distances. He is visited weekly by a community nurse.

Mr Downing, who is married with four children, believes he developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos.

He was a 16-year old apprentice carpenter in 1955 with the firm Tranfield & Co, then of Buckingham Road, Bletchley.
