The parents of a man who died after a blunder at Stafford Hospital have been told there will now be a second inquest into his death.
John Moore-Robinson died in 2006 after a doctor failed to spot he had a ruptured spleen following a bike accident.
An initial inquest recorded a narrative verdict, meaning no one was held responsible for his death.
His parents say not all the evidence has been heard.
Phil Brewster reports.
Frank and Janet Robinson have been granted permission for a second inquest into the death of their son John Moore-Robinson who died of a ruptured spleen after a misdiagnosis by doctors at Stafford Hospital in 2006.
Following a long campaign the parents of a man who died after being treated at Stafford Hospital have been granted a second inquest into his death.
John Moore-Robinson, from Coalville in Leicestershire, suffered a ruptured spleen in 2006 but staff at the hospital failed to diagnose the injury and John died in agony at home
Shortly after John's death a report was published on behalf of the Stafford Coroner which condemned the actions of the hospital. However this report did not reach the coroner and the inquest recorded a narrative verdict.
John's parents have insisted that the first inquest did not hear all the evidence in the case and after a lengthy campaign the Attorney General granted permission to apply for a second inquest on the basis of this argument.
