Mother of baby Eli asked woman to change her statement, says hospital nurse

A court has been hearing how a mother-of-nine children, who's accused of causing or allowing the death of her five-month-old baby, was overheard asking another woman to change her statement.

Eli Cox stopped breathing at his home on the Isle of Sheppey in April last year.

He was rushed to hospital with what turned out to be a 'catastrophic' brain injury and 28 bone fractures.

Staff from that hospital have been giving evidence in Maidstone Crown Court.

Abigail Bracken reports.
