Parents of 1,300 children were initially awarded £15million legal aid to sue the MMR makers, Merck, Aventis Pasteur and Glaxo-SmithKline.

But the Legal Services commission controversially withdrew funding in 2003 for the group action saying it had no reasonable chance of success.

These two families have recently had their legal aid reinstated - however it is not clear at this stage how much they will be able to get and whether it will be enough to fund a lengthy battle through the courts.
