Newborn baby's death prompts investigation

Health chiefs have begun an investigation after a baby died just hours after being born.

The baby's mother Shannon Barton had been told she would have to go into hospital for monitoring as soon as she went into labour because of an infection.

But when her partner rang the maternity unit at the Royal Gwent, he says he was told there was nothing they could do in the early stages of labour.
