An award-winning BBC radio presenter died due to rare complications from the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, a coroner has ruled.

44-year-old Lisa Shaw, who worked for BBC Radio Newcastle received her first dose of the vaccine on April 29.

Few days after the jab, Shaw, a mother of one from Consett, began experiencing severe headaches. On May 13, she was taken by ambulance to University Hospital of North Durham, where doctors diagnosed a blood clot in her head.

She complained of having a "severe headache shooting and stabbing" across her forehead and behind her eyes, Dr. John Holmes who treated her said in a statement.

She was referred to Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary for specialist treatment.

She had suffered a brain hemorrhage and after her condition began to deteriorate, doctors had to remove a part of her skull to try and relieve the pressure inside her head.

Despite the surgery and treatments, Shaw died on May 21.

Newcastle senior coroner, Karen Dilks, who oversaw the inquest on Thursday, Aug. 26, recorded a narrative verdict at the end of the hearing.

After the inquest, which lasted less than an hour, she concluded: "Lisa died due to complications of an AstraZeneca COVID vaccine."

The coroner said: "On April 29 2021, she had a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine and, following that, she developed a vaccine-induced thrombosis and thrombocytopenia - a rare and aggressive complication associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine, which was the underlying cause of her death."

After the hearing, Shaw's family said in a statement: "This is another difficult day in what has been a devastating time for us."

"The death of our beloved Lisa has left a terrible void in our family and in our lives."

"She truly was the most wonderful wife, mum, daughter, sister, and friend."
