A retired nursing assistant says she has been badly let down by the hospital she worked for for over 30 years. Margaret Rowbotham from Manchester was taken into Tameside Hospital with a fractured ankle, but ended up breaking her leg in two places when they dropped her during a routine lift.

The hospital's apologised and are in the process of sorting compensation, but Margaret says no amount of money will make up for her loss of independence.
