A SCUBA diver has to pay all of the £20,000 medical fees after suffering decompression sickness in the Red Sea. Although he had insurance that was only valid down to 30 metres, he was diving at nearly 50 m.

Anthony Allen, 68, from Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, has had treatment since he got the bends on 8 August.
