Sick stonemason 'let down' by Stoneyhurst College

A former stonemason from Liverpool who developed an incurable lung disease while working at a Lancashire boarding school has said he feels "let down".

Terry McGough had been repairing Stonyhurst College's 200-year-old buildings when he was diagnosed with silicosis in 2011 from silica dust found in stones.

He said he did not want to blame Stonyhurst College which was fined £100,000 after admitting a Health and Safety breach.
