Description
Kevin Murphy interviews Danny Morgan from Sydenham in South London, one of a number of haemophiliacs who contracted the HIV virus after being injected with contaminated blood products to treat their condition. The interview comes after a decision to award sufferers £20,000 compensation each from the UK Government, announced by Health Secretary Kenneth Clarke after a group of Conservative MPs went to see the Prime Minister to plead for more cash for the 1200 victims. Danny Morgan welcomes the payout but says it is not enough.
