The parents of a teenage girl who died from multiple organ failure two days after being discharged from Worcestershire Royal Hospital have won an out of court settlement from the hospital trust.

15-year-old Amy Carter died on Christmas Eve of septicaemia and multi-organ failure. Her parents had been told she had glandular fever.

Amy's mother and father say there should also have been an apology along with the compensation.

In a statement that hospital said: "All of those involved in Amy's care were extremely saddened to learn of her death and we extend our greatest sympathies to her family.

"Following Amy's death a full investigation was carried out by the Trust which found that at all stages of her hospital stay, Amy received appropriate care. The results of this investigation were shared with Mr and Mrs Carter."

"We are pleased that the legal claim arising from Amy's death has now been resolved."
