Mother's call for 'justice' after Colchester cancer cover-up

The mother of a four-year-old boy from Essex has demanded 'justice' for her son after it was revealed Colchester Hospital had falsified cancer care data.

Danielle Uren believes her son Mackenzie Cackett might still be alive, had it not been for mistakes in his diagnosis and treatment at the hospital.

The hospital's trust has been reported to the police after staff complained of a cover-up in which they said they were "pressured or bullied" into falsifying data relating to cancer patients.
