The solicitor of a cancer survivor from Bradford is looking for information about his working conditions.

Thompsons Solicitors is representing the man who developed bladder cancer in 2007.

He has undergone surgery to remove the tumour, but his condition is under careful review. He has not been able to return to work and fears the cancer will return.

The 48-year-old worked with potentially cancer-causing chemicals for a number of companies in the Bradford area. He was advised by his doctors that his condition may have been caused by work.

Thompsons are trying to build up a picture of what chemicals and other materials he was exposed to and are pursuing a number of different lines of enquiry.

In particular Thompsons would like to hear from anyone who worked at A H Marks in Wyke Lane, Bradford, between 1977 and 1989 when the company made weed killer and pesticides in sheds 37 and 36.

Marion Voss, from Thompsons, said: “Certain chemicals are recognised as bladder carcinogens. We are trying to build up a picture of the chemical substances and materials this client worked with so that we can consider whether it may be the cause of his bladder cancer.

“Our preliminary inquiries do not constitute any allegation of fault against any particular company.”
