Furness General Hospital: Families take legal action after baby deaths

More than 30 families have taken legal action against a hospital in north-west England after a catalogue of baby and maternal deaths and injuries.

They blame poor care and medical negligence at Furness General Hospital at Morecambe Bay in Cumbria.

Parents also allege that important reports were suppressed in the run-up to the local NHS trust achieving foundation trust status in March 2010.

The trust said there was "no denying" families were let down in the past.

Dominic Hughes reports.
