Compensation for survivors of Thalidomide may be a step closer.
A campaigner from our region says there's been "a very fruitful meeting" with a senior European official in Brussels.
The group he is part of is fighting for compensation from the German pharmaceutical company which developed the morning sickness drug.
It led to thousands of babies being born with birth defects in the 1960s.
Chris Kiddey reports.
The very first memorial to the children so badly affected by the drug Thalidomide has been unveiled in Harrogate.
Survivors came together from all over the country more than five decades after the morning sickness pill was withdrawn from the UK market.
