Bus driver’s death ‘devastating’

The death of a bus driver, whose battle against cancer inspired an awareness campaign, has left her father devastated.

Isobel Gall died on Tuesday 31st December 2019 from mesothelioma — a tumour of the lining of the lungs, heart, or abdomen, often caused by exposure to asbestos.

Driving buses had been the 29-year-old’s ‘dream’ job and in 2018 she beat 250 others to be named Best Driver of the Year.

To help spread the word about Isobel’s condition, services in the West Midlands carried the slogan #We­Stand­With­Isobel.
