Lewisham mayor Sir Steve Bullock said:
"Justice has been delivered. I am delighted for the thousands of people in Lewisham who fought so hard to have their voices heard and applaud all those who dared to hope and believe that together we could make a difference.
"Lewisham Hospital is well-managed, highly respected and financially solvent.
The special administrator should never have been allowed to make recommendations outside his remit, and the Secretary of State should never have adopted his recommendations, and this case should never have come to court."
