Inside Out West - 08/02/2010

It's been called the Swindon disease because of the large numbers of former railway workers who were left suffering after being exposed to deadly asbestos. Josie d'Arby meets a group of men who are fighting a long battle for compensation from the government. Plus Dr Jonathan Foyle discovers why you don't have to go to Egypt to see the pyramids. OK, they might not be as impressive as the Great Pyramids of Giza, but it turns out Gloucestershire has a curious collection of pyramid-shaped monuments scattered all over the county. We meet the Gloucestershire schoolgirl in the fast lane to the chequered flag. Can Alice Powell achieve her dream of racing in Formula One?
