    You can hear Jodi's story in full on Drive Time with me, Andy Comfort after 17:00. 

    Jodi Huggett

    A spokesman for Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust says: "The Trust has admitted breaching its duty of care towards Mrs Huggett for suggesting a form of treatment which was inappropriate in her particular circumstances. 

    For this, we would like to offer Mrs Huggett our sincere apologies, and we can confirm that an out of court settlement has now been agreed."

    A multiple sclerosis patient from East Yorkshire says pioneering stem cell treatment has improved his condition so much that he may be able to return to work. 

    Lance Gordon, who lives near Beverley, had to raise £40,000 to travel to Mexico for the procedure, but says it's already making a huge difference to his quality of life.

    The treatment Lance is undergoing, HSCT, is in a trial phase here in the UK, but there is caution about whether it will help more than just a handful of patients with MS. 

    The MS Society say they are looking forward to seeing the results of the trials because it does hold a lot of promise, but say at the moment the treatment does also carry a lot of risk.
