Luigi Belcuore knee surgery death: Family gets compensation

The family of a man who died during an operation on his knee has been awarded an undisclosed sum in compensation.

Luigi Belcuore, aged 43 and from Warwickshire, died in October 2009 when attempts to close the wound in his knee went wrong at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Shropshire.

Speaking after the hearing at Birmingham High Court, his widow, Penny Belcuore, said: "I'm relieved today is over and it's finally come to an end."
