The family of a severely brain-damaged boy were awarded £6 million in compensation today following a 10-year battle for justice.

Joseph O'Reggio, now 11 years old, developed severe cerebral palsy after an error at Wolverhampton's New Cross Hospital left him starved of oxygen at birth.

His parents, Rachel and Julian, told ITV News' Sejal Karia the money will mean he is looked after for the rest of his life.
