The Tate group of art galleries has shunned gifts from the billionaire Sackler family which owns the US pharmaceutical firm linked to the opioid crisis. It follows a decision by the National Portrait Gallery this week not to accept a £1m donation from the Sacklers who are behind Purdue Pharma. Purdue is the controversial company that makes OxyContin , an addictive opioid painkiller.
