Kent hospital discharges mother and baby in pyjamas

Managers at a Kent hospital have apologised to a mother and her one-year-old daughter after they were discharged in their pyjamas at 04:30 in the morning, and told to go home by bus.

Joanne Partridge and daughter Grace had been taken from their home in Dover to the William Harvey Hospital, in Ashford, by ambulance because Grace was struggling to breathe.
