Infected blood inquiry: Lord Fowler defends shocking AIDS campaign ad.

The former Health Secretary, Lord Fowler, has told an inquiry that the public information campaign on Aids in the 1980s was an 'enormous success'. The campaign stamped AIDS as a death sentence with the image of a tombstone.

Around 2,400 people died in the UK after being infected with HIV or hepatitis because of contaminated blood products.

Sky's health correspondent Ashish Joshi reports.
