Midwives accused of leaving baby in cupboard

A tribunal heard today how two midwives looking after a four day old baby left it in a stationary cupboard. The baby's mother was ill and the hospital admitted today it had no guidelines for newborns who couldn't be looked after by their mothers.

The baby was in a cot in the cupboard but was left alone, and was found on its front, which put it at risk of a cot death. Phillippa Tomson reports.
