Lawyers Investigating Link to Cancer at ICI Plant in Blackley, Manchester
Patrick Walsh, a solicitor specialising in industrial disease compensation claims at Manchester law firm, Pannone LLP, is investigating claims that workers at an ICI plant in Blackley (in Greater Manchester) may have developed cancer after being exposed to dangerous chemicals.
Commenting Mr Walsh said, “We are already acting for an ex ICI Blackley employee who has contracted bladder cancer and who worked at the plant from 1955 to 1980. We are keen to speak to people who worked at the same location from the 1950’s through to the 1980’s, in order to establish what chemicals were used, where and how.”
The three areas of the plant of main concern are the Vulcafor, Dianol and Newlakes departments. Patrick Walsh said, “We have had contact with a number of witnesses and have been made aware that a significant number of people who worked at the site have subsequently died of bladder cancer.”
He continued, “We know that there is a history of people exposed to chemicals developing cancers and in addition we are concerned that there may still be contaminated areas around the site, which was bought by Harrow Estates in 2004. We would urge anyone who worked at the ICI plant in Blackley between 1950 and 1980 to contact our Industrial Disease Team on Freephone 0800 0384 384 as soon as possible.”
