William Mead's mother: 'I touched his arm and he was cold'

The mother of William Mead described the moment she reached into his cot and discovered he was dead when she "touched his arm and he was cold".

The death has raised doubts about the capability of NHS 111 call handlers to identify sepsis in babies.

Melissa Mead said it was "evident there were failings" in her son's care.

The NHS England report said GPs had also failed to diagnose him.

It urged better recognition of sepsis.
