92-year-old died after five-hour ambulance wait

The daughter of a 92-year-old woman who died after waiting five hours for an ambulance believes her mother could be alive today if she had been seen earlier.

Bridgette Forde died in December after a fall at her home in Muswell Hill, north London. Once she finally got to hospital, she waited a further 14 hours for treatment before dying of pneumonia.

Marc Ashdown speaks to her daughter Helen Forde and Dr Mark Spencer, medical director for the NHS in London.
