More than 2,500 women who were victims of the PIP breast implant scandal should receive compensation, a French appeal court has decided.
It also upheld an earlier judgement finding German company TUV Rheinland, which awarded safety certificates for the faulty implants, negligent.
The case in Paris involved 540 British women, who said they suffered long-term health effects.
The results could have far-reaching implications for other victims.
Jan Spivey is one of the women in the case. She was given PIP implants after she had a mastectomy due to breast cancer.
