Patient who spent two years in hospital bed 'wanted to leave'

A patient evicted after spending two years in a hospital bed has said he "didn't want to stay".

James Paget Hospital, in Gorleston, Norfolk, sought a court order to remove Adriano Guedes, 63, who suffers paralysis after a stroke.

The hospital obtained a court order and evicted him two weeks ago, saying he had occupied the bed "unnecessarily".

"I didn't want to stay, and they forced me to stay," Mr Guedes told the BBC.

"I don't feel guilty because I didn't cause the situation."
