Lamp post baby: latest from inquest

Workers on the construction site where a lamp post fell, fatally injuring a baby boy, were "under pressure" to get the job done quickly, an inquest heard today.

A steel cable supporting the lamp post was inadvertently severed during the excavation works.

Tommy Hollis suffered head injuries when his pram was hit by the falling structure in Chiswick in 2010. Sangeeta Kandola reports from the hearing.
