Hamzah Khan death: Mother says son 'starved himself'

A mother accused of killing her four-year-old son denied starving him, telling police he "would starve himself", a court has heard.

Hamzah's remains were not found until 2011. Ms Hutton, 43, has denied manslaughter.

In an interview played to Bradford Crown Court, she said she had failed to get him medical help because she had a fear of doctors and hospitals.

Ed Thomas reports.
