Trial of mum accused of manslaughter continues

The trial continues of a mum accused of killing her baby. A court's heard Natalie McMillan, 25, dropped a TV on her son Kian while on drugs.

Jurors hear McMillan's 999 call. Her first words were not about her critically-injured baby, but "I was messing about with my telly".

McMillan, from Burnley, told a 999 operator she was "trying to put a scart lead in to watch a DVD" and the TV had "fallen over onto him".

Ambulance Technician Claire Welch went to Kian's aid. She tells jurors he had a blood filled swelling on his head and ineffective breathing.
