Three women with breast cancer who were wrongly given the all clear, are now in line for compensation, after the hospital trust responsible admitted liability.
In total 16 women were wrongly told they didn't have the disease after mistakes were made in the screening process by the North Cumbria trust which runs the hospitals in Carlisle and Whitehaven.
The mistakes were spotted in 2010 after inspectors discovered serious problems. The trust has apologised unreservedly and says it is working to resolve the other 13 cases.
