British PIP patient: 'Bring those responsible to justice'

Today UK PIP implant patient Jan Spivey told the court: "within two years of having the implants I had severe symptoms, lost use of my left arm and shoulder and suffered severe inflammatory reactions."

At times she cried during evidence and said " the effect has been trauma for me, my friends and family....it was a terror....I was terrified I feel I have been poisoned"

She told the court she had spent time in hospital saying "my symptoms included change in breast shape and breast deflation....also sub tissue lumps"

In conclusion she said " I have to appeal to you to bring all those responsible for terrorising so many women, bring them to justice."
