A TEESSIDE widow and more than 1,000 atom bomb test veterans and their families will have to wait until after Easter to discover if their compensation claims can go ahead.

The ex-servicemen, their widows and families claim that the men were made ill by radiation exposure following nuclear tests in the Pacific and mainland Australia in the 1950s.

The claims, if successful, could potentially cost the Ministry of Defence hundreds of millions of pounds in compensation payments for a wide range of health problems.
