Mother's triple murder charges dropped

A mother who admitted killing her three young disabled children will not face murder charges.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has accepted Tania Clarence's guilty plea to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility, the Old Bailey heard.

The children, who all had type 2 spinal muscular atrophy, were found at their home on 22 April.

Matt Prodger reports.
