"Missed opportunities" in baby death case

Coroner Nicola Mundy has recorded a narrative verdict of one year-old Lewis Mundy's death. At Rotherham Magistrates Court today, she said there were there "missed opportunities" at both the NHS Walk-in centres and Rotherham General Hospital, which could have saved his life.

Lewis had chicken pox but he had developed a secondary bacterial infection, which was missed by health professionals - despite repeated warnings from his mother. Antibiotics could have saved his life.
