THE fight for justice for thousands of haemophiliacs given contaminated blood in the 1970s and 1980s is continuing.

A Bolton man, who was infected along with his brother — who later died — will take part in a peaceful demonstration outside the Leigh office of Health Secretary, Andy Burnham, today.

David Fielding and his brother Brian, both haemophiliacs, were given contaminated blood products.

Brian was infected with HIV in 1985 and died five years later at the age of 46.

David, of Darley Avenue, Farnworth, contracted hepatitis B and C and needed a liver transplant.

The 53-year-old will join other campaigners from across the country to hand Mr Burnham a number of documents including the report from the Archer Inquiry, an independent investigation into the scandal.

They want him to follow its recommendations, which include more compensation for victims, forming a haemophilia committee and apologising to those affected, after the government ignored most of the findings.

The demonstration will take place at noon at 10 Market Street in Leigh.
