Seven years and 14 operations down the line, a woman who went to hospital with a broken leg still needs more operations to fix the damage done in a string of botched jobs by a Lincolnshire hospital.
Mother-of-three Tracey Hughes, from Spalding, has been left with one leg three-and-a-half centimetres shorter than the other and is still suffering after her fall.
Boston Pilgrim Hospital, which is run by the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, has admitted responsibility and apologised, as well as paying out more than £1million in compensation.
