In brief: Law Soc re-opens implant help-line

The Law Society has re-opened its enquiry line for women with silicone breast implants following the decision to extend to 1 March the deadline for possible claimants to register against the US settlement fund. More than 8,000 women have already called the line, and it is estimated between 30,000 and 40,000 women in the UK could be eligible to register.
