Inquiry into hoax calls alleging relatives in hospital

A string of hoax calls where families are called in the early hours of the morning and told relatives have died are being investigated.

Warwickshire Police said it was looking into six calls made in the early hours of Friday and Saturday morning.

All the victims, from the Nuneaton and Bedworth area, were told to go to George Eliot Hospital, the force said.

George Eliot Hospital said making calls in the early hours of the morning was not an approach it normally adopted.
