Survivors of the thalidomide tragedy are set to receive compensation from a multimillion-pound settlement with the UK government.

Campaigners have fought a long and hard battle for increased compensation for the victims who suffered from terrible deformities as a result of their mothers taking the thalidomide drug during pregnancy.  The NHS prescribed the drug in the 1950s and the 1960s as a remedy for morning sickness. 

There are 460 survivors from the tragedy in the United Kingdom and it is thought that they are close to agreeing a deal which would give them an average of £18,000 compensation a year.

It has also been reported that the government will issue a public apology for the tragedy.
