Chris Brennan's family speak about teenager's death

A coroner has ruled that gross failures by one of England's largest mental health trusts contributed to the death of a teenage patient in south London.

Christopher Brennan was 15 when he died in the Bethlem Royal hospital two years ago.

The inquest was told that staff carried out no risk assessment even though he had a history of self-harm.

Michael Buchanan has been speaking to his family.
