Jack Adcock death: Medics deny boy's manslaughter

A doctor called off attempts to save a six-year-old boy because she mistakenly believed he had a "do not resuscitate" order, a trial has heard.

Jack Adcock of Glen Parva died after being admitted to Leicester Royal Infirmary with pneumonia in 2011.

Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba, who denies manslaughter due to negligence, had mixed him up with another patient, Nottingham Crown Court was told.

Two nurses also deny charges of manslaughter by gross negligence.

Sian Lloyd reports.
