Around 3500 sufferers of mesothelioma, who can't trace a liable employer or an employers' liability insurer, will be able to apply for a share of a £380m UK government package.

Phyllis Craig, of Clydeside Action on Asbestos, said: "It is of the utmost importance that those with mesothelioma, who are unable to trace their employers, have recourse to the maximum amount of compensation."
