A woman dying of exposure to asbestos at Battersea Power Station remarried her husband as she lay on her deathbed.

Mother-of-two Hazel Badgery, 62, died at Kingston Hospital after a wedding ceremony with Stephen Badgery on August 16, 2012.

She was admitted to hospital after experiencing breathing and swallowing difficulties on August 6.

Mrs Badgery, who lived in Fullers Avenue, Tolworth, died from mesothelioma, an industrial-disease brought on by exposure to asbestos, coroner Chinyere Inyama concluded in the hearing at West London Coroners' Court today.

No family members were present as he read out documentary evidence.

The court heard Mrs Badgery, born in Battersea, had worked for Battersea Power Station as her father had in the 1950s and 60s, and had come into contact with asbestos.

Her father also died from an asbestos-related illness.

Three days before Mrs Badgery died, she received a letter from her solicitors telling her that her claim against Battersea Power Station had been admitted.

She didn't remarry her husband after being exposed to asbestos, did she? Think.

Ugh, asbestos... Nasty stuff. I work for a rubber roofing company, and we deal with lots of customers who want their asbestos roofs encapsulated. I am not surprised at all - just cracking the stuff can release the nasties inside. At least within a thick film of rubber it's not a hazard, but there's only so many things you can coat...
