On 14 January 2020 Stewart J granted the Claimants permission to appeal against the decision of Master Cook dated 4 November 2019 striking out their secondary victim claims. The claims arose from them witnessing of the heart attack and death of their father some 14 months after the negligence occurred that the Claimants allege led to his death.

Laura Johnson is instructed on behalf of the Appellants by Shoosmiths LLP.
