The family of a man from Essex who died from cancer are locked in a legal battle with their insurance company after being told they won't receive a payout - because he didn't tell them he suffered from pins and needles.
Nic Hughes from Manningtree died in October. His family say that despite having a critical illness policy his insurance firm FriendsLife are refusing to pay out.
The company says he did not give full disclosure of his health - a claim the Hughes family deny.
An online petition calling for the payout has attracted over 50,000 signatures and celebrity supporters, including Miranda Hart and Stephen Fry, who have tweeted about the case.
The matter has now been referred to the Ombudsman.
