Connor Ellerton had previously suffered with multiple ear infections but his GP was not worried about them and prescribed him with antibiotics.

The then 14-year-old, from Merseyside, carried on as normal until his head teacher rang his mother in 2019 after Connor's rugby team training session to inform her something was wrong.
