Grimsby mum calls for Spinal Muscular Atrophy screening

A bereaved mother from Grimsby is calling for a change in screening procedures for pregnant women to help spot a rare genetic disease.

Laura Taylor's six-month-old daughter Grace died after being born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Ms Taylor claims a simple blood test would have spotted the disease before birth, and is now hoping to raise awareness of the condition.
