A mother left paralysed when she was given an injection contaminated with cleaning fluid is set to receive up to £5 million compensation.
Angelique Sutcliffe was given the epidural injection shortly before giving birth to her baby daughter, Abigail.
But she was left writhing in agony on her bed and suffered catastrophic neurological damage which has left her wheelchair-bound for life.
Yesterday she took her fight for compensation to the Appeal Court in London where she won the right to millions of pounds in compensation.
