Victims cry 'whitewash' over Penrose blood infection inquiry

Victims and relatives of a contaminated blood scandal shouted out "whitewash" at the end of a news conference which revealed the findings of a judge-led inquiry.

Thousands of people were infected with Hepatitis C and HIV through NHS blood products in the 1970s and 80s.

But the inquiry concluded few matters could have been done differently.

And it made only a single recommendation - that anyone in Scotland who had a blood transfusion before 1991 should be tested for Hepatitis C if they have not already done so.
