Hospital bosses 'saddened' by woman's death

Police are continuing their investigations into the death of a woman in a Cumbrian hospital.

Officers were called in by the coroner after 44-year-old Sharon Grierson died at the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle last Monday.

A spokesman for North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust said they were saddened by her death but add that it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.

"We are deeply saddened by the death of a 44-year-old patient and we wish to express our sympathy to the patient’s family.

"We cannot comment further about the circumstances surrounding the patient’s death due to the current police investigation."
