Redditch diabetic's death leads to payout by health trust

The family of a mother-of-three who died after a hospital failed to treat her diabetes have received an undisclosed settlement from a health trust.

Margaret Pitt, 55, from Redditch, died in November 2010 after staff at the town's Alexandra Hospital failed to monitor her glucose levels.

Mrs Pitt's 62-year-old husband, David, told the BBC's Michele Paduano she was "let down so badly by the nurses that were employed to care for her and make her better".

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust gave an unreserved apology for "failures in Mrs Pitt's care".
