His solicitors obtained an independent medical report from an Ear Nose and Throat Surgeon who advised, following a hearing text and examination confirmed a diagnosis of work related noise induced hearing loss or deafness due to work.
The expert described the damage to his hearing as moderatley severe high-tone loss which required the use of a hearing aid.
