Following many years of campaigning, it has been announced that £100,000 will be paid to each victim of the infected blood scandal. Payment will be made by the end of October as interim compensation.
Chair of the public inquiry, Sir Brian Langstaff, acknowledged that is a compelling case to make payments quickly.
This is a start. There are several others who also need to be recognised including parents who lost children, children who lost parents, those infected after 1991 and those whose records have been lost.
