  Sudden Infant Death Syndrome 11 December 2003  
New evidence backing genetic arguments for sudden infant death syndrome cleared Angela Cannings in court yesterday. Lord Justice Judge said that one of the problems in dealing with infant deaths was that it was concerned with matters "at the cutting edge" of medical knowledge.

In the wake of the recent Sally Clarke and Trupti Patel cases Jenni talks to Joyce Epstein of the Foundation for the Study of Infant Death about what the impact of this latest court decision clearing another mother previously convicted of killing her own children, will be?
