Ahead of the verdict later today, Mandy Luckman, a specialist medical lawyer who is representing the family, said:
The past few months have been extremely harrowing for the entire family.
The verdict, which will be delivered in the same week that the family mark the third anniversary of Hayley's tragic death, will be an important milestone for them, as they have always maintained that they cannot begin to move forward with their lives until the inquest is complete and they finally are able to understand why their daughter's death occurred.
