Asbestos campaign is appreciated by MPs
THE Derby Telegraph's campaign "Asbestos – the Deadly Dust" is a classic example of a local newspaper using its position for all the right reasons. It helps to increase understanding and awareness of a highly important topic.
Asbestos was and remains a killer. Its lengthy incubation period adds to the cruelty, while the poor prognosis that mesothelioma carries with it gives the disease a sinister feel.
Organisations such as the Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team undertake a vital role to ensure more people understand the disease and in supporting sufferers and their families.
But both of those aims are huge missions in themselves. That is why the Derby Telegraph campaign is so important.

By dealing with issues relating to asbestos, whether it be progress on the various legal aspects or simply reporting on the sufferers and their families, the Derby Telegraph is taking the issue to a new audience – something charitable organisations will struggle to achieve on their own.
In an era when the press has come under significant attack for the dubious actions of a small minority at national publications, the regional media continues to be healthy and focused on serving its communities.
The Derby Telegraph is a prime example of that, and its approach on increasing awareness and understanding of the impact of asbestos on real people's lives is testament to that. As a supporter of the all-party parliamentary group on asbestos, I know campaigns like the Derby Telegraph's is greatly appreciated by parliamentarians.
