Salisbury man awarded compensation for mesothelioma

A 60-year-old Salisbury man, originally from Sardinia in Italy, has received a six figure sum in compensation for developing the fatal disease, mesothelioma whilst working as a chef.  Mr Luigi Pes had moved to Britain, aged 31, in 1982.  He had been working for La Gondola Italian Restaurant in Fisherton Street in Salisbury where he was exposed to asbestos from the seals on the pizza oven and in the store room ceiling.  Mr Pes was not warned by his employers about the dangers that working with asbestos could pose to his health.  When he sought medical advice about a long-term chest infection, it was found that he had contracted the asbestos related disease.  Mesothelioma is an incurable cancer affecting the lining of the lungs.
