Leicestershire explosion: from the scene

Neighbours said they thought a bomb had gone off after a huge explosion at a house in Birstall in Leicestershire.

One house was completely flattened and others have been damaged, forcing many families to leave their homes. Rajiv Popat reports from the scene:

Doctor convicted over boy's death 'should be struck off'

There were angry scenes outside the High Court in London as a mother from Leicester confronted a group of doctors. Nicola Adcock's son Jack died at Leicester Royal Infirmary six years ago.

The paediatrician in charge was found guilty of manslaughter, but can't be banned from working in medicine forever.

Today, the General Medical Council has been appealing against that decision. They want Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba to be struck off permanently. But she is supported by some in the medical profession, as Rebecca Burrows reports.
