Coroner Aidan Cotter in plea over instruments

A coroner is to write to surgeons across the country asking them to check all their instruments personally before using them.

It follows the death of a 16-year-old boy during a routine operation at Birmingham Children's Hospital.

The coroner's comments came at an inquest into Ryan Senior from Redditch, Worcestershire.

BBC Midlands Today's health correspondent Michele Paduano reports.
