Speaking at the House of Commons Liaison Committee, he said: "This was a dreadful case, it was an absolute tragedy for the family.

"When you read of how hard she had worked across her life and all the things that she had done, and how much she cared about health and looking after people, it's a terrible, terrible case and as I said yesterday, I'm sure there are lessons to learn.

"I think when these things happen, having the full facts of the case, it doesn't bring anyone back but I think it does help people come to terms with what has happened."
