Primodos and Birth Defects : What was the Risk?

Sky News investigation exposes Primodos pregnancy drug cover-up

Around 1.5 million women in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s took Primodos in the early stages of pregnancy. Some say their pregnancies resulted in miscarriage or birth defects.

Sky News’ hour-long documentary Primodos: The Secret Drug Scandal is presented by senior political correspondent Jason Farrell, who has been investigating it for six years.

Sky News revealed how documents were destroyed and information withheld about a drug that may have deformed and killed babies in the womb.
