Clydebank Asbestos Group has proudly, and poignantly, unveiled a memorial to all those who have died as a result of asbestos exposure in Scotland.

The memorial, designed by artist Jephson Robb, has been erected close to Glasgow Road at the bottom of Hume Street. It is engraved with the names of more than 500 people who have lost their lives to asbestos-related diseases.

However, due to the long latency period of industrial diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer, the group expects more names to be added each year for some time to come.

Hope Robertson, secretary of the CAG told The National, "Sadly, there will be an awful lot more names added to the memorial in the coming years because there are people out there who still don't know they have it. This terrible disease [mesothelioma] lies dormant for years and is a silent killer.

"The big deal now is the school children, teachers, nurses, doctors, patients and anyone really who spent time in old buildings with asbestos. It is still killing people. People just don't realise the extent of it."

Mrs Robertson's husband David lost his life to mesothelioma 15 years ago. He was 59.

CAG was formed in 1992 to assist affected people and their families so that they can understand and act upon their legal rights.

Clydebank is an area in Scotland known for its heritage of heavy industry; including shipyards, a sewing machine factory and an asbestos factory.
