Payout for glue injection error

A girl who was left brain damaged after she was accidentally injected with glue in her brain is to receive a multimillion-pound payout.

Maisha Najeeb, who is now aged 13, was undergoing a treatment which involved an injection of glue to block off bleeding blood vessels and an injection of dye to check her blood flow.

During the procedure at Great Ormond Street Hospital in June 2010 two syringes got mixed up and glue was injected into an artery in her brain leaving Maisha, who was aged 10 at the time, with brain damage.

BBC London's Ayesha Buksh spoke to the family's solicitor Edwina Rawson, from legal firm Field Fisher Waterhouse.
