According to the Lynn News, 67-year-old Harold Hart was diagnosed with mesothelioma in November 2009 and it was subsequently established he came into contact with asbestos while working as an electrician at Sandringham House in 1985.
"The [basements and underground walkways and tunnels] were dusty with little or no ventilation and there was a lot of crumbly asbestos debris on the floor," he told the news source.
Mr Hart was contracted to conduct work there by GE Child & Son, a company he had also completed projects for at the Dow Chemicals factory in Lynn one year previously.
Furthermore, the professional came into contact with the deadly substance while working as a projectionist at London's Elephant & Castle Cinema in the 1960s.
As such, he has now been granted an undisclosed sum of personal injury damages.
