Two teenagers who claim their disabilities were caused by heart treatment when they were babies have been awarded a total of £1m compensation.

Kristian Dixon and Jessica Johnson took their cases to the High Court 10 years after the public inquiry into paediatric cardiac surgery at Bristol Royal Infirmary in the 1980s and 1990s. Sarah Paneth, counsel for United Bristol Healthcare NHS Trust, said the settlements were reached without admission of liability.
