Campaigners are calling for a Europe-wide public inquiry into how a vaccine triggered devastating health sleep and brain disorders in a scandal they claim is as big as thalidomide.

Almost 1,700 people suffered narcolepsy after being vaccinated for swine flu. They are vowing to continue their fight for justice at the European Union.

This can lead to symptoms such as disturbed night-time sleep, excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy – the term given to sudden muscular weakness triggered by strong emotions such as laughter, anger and surprise. As a result, narcolepsy is often thought of as a sleep disorder, but its underlying cause means that it is better classified as a disorder of the central nervous system.

      Which is a derisory sum for the ruined life of a child.
