Leo Whiten’s family and lawyers have received confirmation that he is to be awarded substantial ongoing compensation to enable him to obtain the long-term treatment and care and stablility he needs.

Tragically, due to a failure to perform a caesarean section when it became clear that Samantha’s labour was not going to plan, Leo was deprived of oxygen before his birth and now suffers with Cerebral Palsy.

Judge Caroline Swift confirmed that Leo will receive a settlement worth around
