No Hugging Please, We're British

A woman claims she contracted terminal lung cancer from hugging her dockworker father is suing the British Ministry of Defence for £75,000. said: "I could never have imagined that playing with my father could kill me. "Dad was a very loving man and I behaved like any normal child would.
"Working at the yard was tough and he loved to come home to his family. "We would always have a little hug and I'd sit on his knee. I never thought that those precious moments would come to this. "This is the only explanation behind my condition because it is an asbestos-related lung cancer and it is the only exposure I have ever had."
