A British charity has rejected an apology from the German company which invented the birth defect drug Thalidomide.
The Grunenthal Group, apologising for the first time in 50 years, said it "regrets" the consequences of the drug which was used to combat morning sickness. But Thalidomide UK Agency said the company should "put their money where their mouth is" rather than just say sorry.
The German company who manufactured anti-morning sickness drug thalidomide will apologise today. Here is the text in full of the speech.
