Building contractor says M&S knew of asbestos risk

A building contractor who had carried out work at a number of Marks & Spencer stores has made a series of claims to the BBC about the level of risk from asbestos at a number of stores during refurbishments.

M&S was fined back in 2011 for asbestos risks in its Reading store during refurbishment. However, the contractor is claiming this is just one of many incidents in his experience with the company.
