A tobacco company has been ordered to pay a widow £14billion after her husband died of lung cancer, the Associated Press have reported.
Cynthia Robinson filed damages against US firm R.J Reynolds following the death of her longtime smoker husband Michael Johnson Snr in 1996.
The damages are on top of £9.8million in compensation she was awarded by Florida's Supreme Court.
The pay out is thought to be the biggest ever awarded in such a case.
