Claims of a cover up following the death of a Thalidomide baby born more than fifty years ago
Police have been asked to investigate a family's claim of a cover-up over medical records relating to the birth and death of a Thalidomide baby, more than fifty years ago.
Keith and Shirley Hudson have only recently discovered the last resting place of their baby boy, who was born in December 1962 with physical deformities caused by the morning sickness drug
But they were distressed they couldn't find a birth or death certificate and Mrs Hudson's GP files make no mention of the boy's birth in Bradford, or even prescription of the drug. The family, now living in East Yorkshire, has reported what they believe is a theft of medical records to West Yorkshire Police.
