Infected Blood Inquiry: Family of scandal victim Peter Lloyd hoping for closure after 'years of cover-ups and lies'

At every step through the Infected Blood Inquiry, he has been in his family's hearts and minds.

Just like every other bereaved family carrying the memories of loved ones throughout their long fight for justice.

"The way I feel... I don't feel like my brother can rest until we all rest," Peter Lloyd's sister Sarah told Sky News.

Mr Lloyd was the second of seven siblings.

He joined the RAF and loved serving his country. He became a chief technician and was posted to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus.

However, it was a car crash in the UK in July 1985 that caused him to suffer horrendous injuries.

He had a blood transfusion in hospital that he and his family believed had saved his life. That may have been true, but it also, years later, led to his death.

He was only told more than a decade after the transfusion that he'd received contaminated blood. He was diagnosed with hepatitis C shortly after.

Mr Lloyd later developed bowel and liver cancer and died aged 55 in 2008.

'It tears your life apart'

His family's mission since then has been to help ensure the whole scandal of contaminated blood transfusions is fully understood.

His sister Sarah Martin, 66, told Sky News that compensation should be paid, but that it can't put right the wrongs: "I'd rather have my brother, I'd rather not have any money.

"He's gone - they have taken him through reckless blood transfusions.

"It's just heartbreaking it tears your life apart."

Mr Lloyd's youngest sister Louise Huxley, 57, added: "It shouldn't be like this - it shouldn't be this hard.

"We're finally coming to the end of this saga and we are hopeful that we will finally get justice and closure."

"If the prime minister does speak about the final report on Monday I hope there is sincerity," she added.

"There's been years of cover ups, lies and injustice - we just want it to end."

The final report from the six-year public inquiry will be published in London on Monday.
