The mother of a Cheshire teenager who was left severely brain damaged by the MMR vaccine has won a compensation award from the government.
Robert Fletcher, 18, from Warrington, suffered a fit 10 days after he had the vaccination when he was 13 months old.
His mother Jackie received the £90,000 payout from a medical assessment panel last week.
The family successfully appealed after their application for compensation was originally turned down in 1997.
