Doctor and nurses in abortion clinic death manslaughter charges

A doctor and two nurses have been charged with the manslaughter of a woman who died hours after an abortion at a Marie Stopes clinic in London.

The woman, 32, from the Republic of Ireland, died in Ealing after the procedure in 2012.

Dr Adedayo Adedeji, 62, and nurses Gemma Pullen, 31, and Margaret Miller, 54, have been charged with manslaughter by gross negligence.

All three are due before Ealing Magistrates' Court on 19 June.

The charge all three face also relates to failing to take reasonable care of those affected by omissions at work, contrary to the Health and Safety Act 1974, Scotland Yard said.
