Luke Jenkins: Family's 'questions' over heart defect care

21 November 2013 Last updated at 19:01 GMT

A boy born with a congenital heart defect who died after heart surgery in Bristol suffered brain damage caused by cardiac arrest, an inquest has heard.

Luke Jenkins, seven, from Cardiff, was expected to make a full recovery after the operation at Bristol Children's Hospital in March 2012.

Avon coroner Maria Voisin recorded a narrative verdict saying she had heard "no evidence of gross failure" in the care he received in hospital.

Luke's family said they still believed his death had been preventable.

His grandparents, Mandi and Paul Valentine, said they would continue to ask questions about care on behalf of other families of children with heart defects.
