A former Forth Road Bridge engineer is raising funds for prostate cancer research.

Hector Woodhouse, who was featured in last week’s BBC documentary ‘The Bridge – 50 Years Across the Forth’. worked on the project as a student engineer, before being taken on full-time .

“It feels like yesterday not 50 years ago,” he said.

In 2004 he was diagnosed as having prostate cancer and, in return for the support provided to him, decided to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

He put pen to paper and the result is an e-book titled ‘The Forth Road Bridge: Hector’s Stories’ published on Amazon.

It tells a selection of Hector’s tales from his time on the bridge project.

The book, costing £2, is available at www.amazon.co.uk/The-Forth-Road-Bridge-Hectors-ebook/dp/B00MZG0N5O.

Already sales in the last 10 days have topped 100 downloads.
