A grandfather from Ipswich who was infected with HIV during the NHS blood scandal is cautiously welcoming the start of the public inquiry today.
Alan Burgess has been campaigning for 30 years to seek justice for fellow victims of the contaminated blood tragedy.
Mr Burgess told ITV News: "What they basically thought is if we hang on long enough they'll be dead. At the end of the day, this won't finish with me dying."
In the 1970s and 80s, 4,670 people contracted Hepatitis C and 1,243 people contracted HIV through being given contaminated blood during NHS treatments.
Some of these came from high-risk sources, including prisoners. It's believed around 2,000 people have died while thousands more were left with incurable diseases, including HIV and Hepatitis C.
After pressure from campaign groups, the public inquiry was announced by the Government last year.
