Barry amputee loses Greece crash payout court battle

A woman who was hit by an uninsured driver while abroad will have her compensation assessed under Greek law, the Supreme Court has ruled.

Tiffany Moreno, from Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, had her right leg amputated below the knee after she was hit in Zakynthos in May 2011.

It means she can expect less money than if it was under domestic law.
