A survivor of the contaminated blood scandal that infected dozens of children with HIV has told Sky News he hopes to find out why “no one told us we were injecting death” as an inquiry into what happened continues.

Ade Goodyear suffered from severe haemophilia as a child and was sent to the Lord Mayor Treloar College in Hampshire at the age of nine in 1980, as it had a specialist NHS centre.

The school gave him a new treatment called Factor VIII, which had first been made available just a few years earlier.

But at the age of 15 – in 1985 – he was taken into a room with four other pupils and told the blood plasma used in the treatment had been wrongly infected with HIV and hepatitis.
