The parents of an Essex teenager who died after a catalogue of errors at a failing hospital have described how their daughter was treated as "collateral damage".

Amie Miller, 15, was taken to Basildon Hospital A&E in November 2008 after suffering headaches while studying for her GCSEs.

She died from a brain condition three days later and an inquest at Essex County Hall heard the hospital missed several opportunities to save her life.
