The daughter of a former Pinewood Studios worker who died after being diagnosed with mesothelioma is searching for information about his work conditions.

Richard 'Dick' Strange, who worked at the famous studio in Buckinghamshire in the mid-1960s, is suspected to have been exposed to asbestos used in construction on film sets at the time.

Richard’s daughter expressed her anguish for seeking justice for her father who she described as an "honest, hardworking tradesman."

She said: "Our dad was an honest, hardworking tradesman who truly took pride in his craft.

"Work was his life but also, tragically, his death.

"Our family is seeking justice for him, and all those whose lives have or will be cut short by mesothelioma.

"No one deserves to die from work."

Richard's family are turning to people who might have been at Pinewood Studios during Richard's stint between the mid-1960s and 1967 for clues to map his exposure to the deadly material.

The family lawyer, Daniel Easton also emphasised the need for information.

Mr Easton said: "Richard was a much-loved father and grandfather and it is tragic that his family have lost him.

"We are hoping to help Richard’s family by finding other people who worked at Pinewood Studios from the mid 1960s to 1967 who can provide further information about the ways Richard may have been exposed to asbestos."

Instructions to reach out to informants have been made clear in the hope of piecing together a clearer picture of Richard's work life at the studio.

Pinewood Studios has been approached for a comment.
