The first trial has opened in Spain against the German producers of the drug thalidomide which caused children to be born with severe abnormalities more than 50 years ago.

Thousands of children in Europe, Australia, Canada and Japan were affected after their mothers were prescribed the drug during pregnancy.

Around 180 Spaniards are seeking a total of 204 million euros in damages.
