The family of an 11-year-old girl who was struck down with a life-threatening illness after a school trip are suing the petting farm where it's thought she contracted the E. coli bug.
Megan Oldfield from Pontefract was on kidney dialysis for two weeks after the visit to Cruckley Animal Farm in East Yorkshire and is now at risk of long-term health problems.
The farm has since closed and denies liability but Megan's family is demanding compensation.
Sally Simpson has the story:
She looked a picture of health - she was a professional dancer - and even Katie Pearson herself didn't realise that her life was in danger.
It took months for doctors to diagnose that Katie, from Barnsley, had bowel cancer, a disease that would take her life in her mid thirties.
A new study has revealed that young people are facing significant delays in cancer diagnosis, Katie's sister has spoken about her families loss. Tina Gelder has Katies's story.

Extra police are on patrol in Lincoln for two days as they aim to rid the city centre of legal highs. A ban was introduced there at the start of April and means anyone caught taking the substances can face a fine and have them confiscated. It was the first city in the country to make the move and in the space of two months 120 people have been stopped by officers. But there are still concerns that people don't realise how dangerous they can be or what the new rules actually are. Michael Billington reports.
Police in Lincoln are beginning a two day clamp down on legal highs in public places across the city.
Taking legal highs in the city has been illegal since April as part of the council's efforts to reduce anti-social behaviour. This weekend officers are hoping to raise awareness of the ban and the dangers associated with legal highs
