Parents sue after baby death

25th June 2007

The parents of a newborn baby who died due to neglect by medical staff are to sue the hospital involved, The Royal Free Trust in Hampstead, north London.

Ian Croft and Heather Paterson, both BBC World Service journalists, said baby Riley – who died from asphyxia 35 minutes after he was born on 25 March 2005 - would still be alive if he had received better care.

A jury at St Pancras Coroner's Court found he died from natural causes contributed to by neglect. The trust apologised "unreservedly" to Riley's parents.
