Teacher’s Death Caused by Asbestos Exposure

An inquest into the death of a former primary school teacher has concluded that she died as a result of exposure to asbestos during her teaching career, the Guardian reports.

Elizabeth Belt worked in a number of primary schools in east Lincolnshire, where she would frequently pin and remove children’s work to asbestos boards in the classrooms.

She later developed mesothelioma and died last September at the age of 68. Following the inquest, the coroner recorded that her death was a result of industrial disease.

The Guardian reports that a compensation claim made by Mrs Belt’s family has been accepted by North Lincolnshire Council’s insurers, although the amount of compensation they will receive has not been made public.

According to charity Mesothelioma UK, just under 22,000 people died as a result of mesothelioma between 2003 and 2012, 224 of whom worked in teaching before their death.
