• The BL

An investigation is ongoing after Lisa Shaw, a local radio broadcaster with BBC Radio, died of a blood clot on the brain at the age of 44, just weeks after receiving the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine.

In a tweet by BBC Radio Newcastle last Sunday, May 23, Shaw's death was confirmed, with the station noting that everyone at the station was "devastated" by the award-winning host's death on May 21.

"She was a brilliant presenter, a wonderful friend and a loving wife and mum," the tweet continued.

On Thursday, May 27, Shaw's family confirmed that the BBC host had been given the AstraZeneca vaccine and experienced "serious headaches" a week later, which progressed to a blood clot on the brain, according to the National File.

The BBC Radio host was not known to have any underlying health issues.
