The presentations, by the inquiry’s junior counsel, were on Wessex and Yorkshire Regional Blood Transfusion Centres.

The inquiry also heard evidence from Dr Huw Lloyd, pictured, former director of Northern Region Blood Transfusion Service from 1988 to 1995 and Dr Stanley Dempsey, consultant paediatric haematologist at Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children from 1980 to 2008.
