A court has heard how a young psychiatric patient asked his mother why he'd been given so much medicine, two hours before he died of an overdose.

Nurse Amanda Young is on trial for the manslaughter by gross negligence of 22-year-old Joshua Gafney from Yeovil, a charge she denies.

Tina Marren, Joshua's mother, was visibly shaking as she told the court that she'd said to her son "she's a nurse, she knows what she's doing".

She went on to say that he'd gone to bed early, telling her the medicine was making him tired, and that he died within two hours.

During cross-examination by defence, Mrs Marren said she wasn't always present when nurses came to give Joshua his medicine in days prior to death. She said she wasn't sure what amounts Joshua was given on those days, and that he didn't comment on it to her.

The trial continues.

Police are appealing for information about a student from the University of Bath who has gone missing.
