Improve tower block access says Druids Heath baby death mum

The mother of twin baby girls who died after emergency crews struggled to get into the tower block she lived in is calling for entry systems to be improved.

Jocelyn Bennett, from Druids Heath in Birmingham, was 32 weeks pregnant when she called an ambulance to her home in November because she was suffering severe pain.

She was unable to let the paramedics in and her children died in hospital several days later.

The 32-year-old, who spent nine days in a coma, said she accepts the 30 minute delay in help reaching her may not have made any difference to what happened to her twins, but she wants to prevent a similar thing happening to anyone else.

The city council said it was still investigating the access issues at the tower block.

BBC Midlands Today reporter Sarah Falkland spoke to the couple.
