A team of scientists has announced that it will soon be able to treat inherited and life-threatening conditions of the heart muscle to save more young people from sudden cardiac death.

The British Heart Foundation has pledged £30m to genetic researchers who believe they can correct the DNA defect responsible for the damage.

Cardiomyopathy can lead to death without warning.

Many members of the same family are often at risk because of their genes.
