  5. Football: Henderson to captain England against Spain

    BBC Sport

    Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson will captain England against Spain on Tuesday, with forward Wayne Rooney not starting the friendly at Wembley.

    Jordan Henderson and Gareth Southgate

    Rooney, skipper for Friday's World Cup qualifying win over Scotland, missed training on Monday with a minor injury.

    "I wouldn't start Wayne in this game, so we'll decide which route to go," said interim boss Gareth Southgate.

    Henderson, 26, captained England in their 0-0 draw in Slovenia last month when Rooney was dropped to the bench.

    "The key for me is I believe we have several leaders," added Southgate. "I don't think we can have just one captain."

  8. Family demands full apology over Alder Hey's baby death 'errors'

    The parents of a baby who died following a routine operation are demanding a full apology after a hospital admitted failings in his care.

    Padraig Henry was 11 weeks old when he was admitted to Liverpool's Alder Hey Children's Hospital for bowel surgery, but contacted the E. coli stomach infection and died in July 2013.

    Padraig Henry

    An investigation found a "catalogue of errors and missed opportunities" were to blame for Padraig Henry's death.

    In a statement, the baby’s father, Colin Henry, said: 

    Quote Message: We were deeply distraught to find out that our son’s life had been cut short by blunders and failings in care. If we had known the hospital was experiencing an E.coli outbreak we would never have allowed our son to have surgery on that day.
    Quote Message: What’s even more saddening is that it’s very likely that if those mistakes had not happened, Padraig would still be with us today.
    Quote Message: We have been fighting for three years for Alder Hey to admit liability and feel very let down that they can’t give us a full detailed apology – even though they have admitted to their wrongdoings.”

    Alder Hey Children's Hospital has been contacted for a response.

  11. Family calls for 'lessons to be learned' after Alder Hey admits failings

    Parents of a newborn baby who died at Liverpool's Alder Hey Hospital are calling for lessons to be learned after the hospital admitted failings in his care.

    Alder Hey Hospital

    Padraig Henry was 11 weeks old when he died after contracting E. coli at the hospital while he was in for routine surgery.

    Solicitors for the family say doctors failed to diagnose the E. coli and treat it straightaway. 

    They say a swab was lost which would have highlighted the infection and believe if Padraig been given vital antibiotics in time, he might still be alive today. 

    After a three year legal battle, the hospital's trust has admitted breach of duty and paid out compensation of £17,500. 

    The child's family say they would now like a full detailed apology from the hospital and hope lessons will be learned so anyone else suffers the same tragedy.

    Alder Hey Hospital have been contacted for a response.
