A showjumping star who sued her mother's GP - claiming she should never have been born - has won the right to millions in damages in a landmark High Court ruling today.
Evie Toombes, 20, was born with spina bifida and sometimes spends 24 hours-a-day connected up to tubes, but has forged a career in showjumping, competing against both disabled and able-bodied riders.
Last month, in a unique 'wrongful conception' damages claim, Evie, from Skegness, sued Dr Philip Mitchell over his failure to advise her mother Caroline Toombes, 50, to take vital supplements before getting pregnant.
