DTP or DPT vaccine safety

Margaret and Kenneth Best

The vanishing victims

Brian Deer investigates claims in the 1970s and 1980s
that whooping cough vaccine caused brain damage

A drug company paid out more than £2.75m, plus costs, when an Irish court declared that Kenneth Best (above) was damaged by whooping cough vaccine. In this award-winning investigation, Brian Deer re-examined the evidence, including that of Kenneth's mother Margaret (right), and asks: what if the law got it wrong?
