Family claims hospital 'failed' Norfolk cancer patient

Relatives of a cancer patient in Norfolk have made an official complaint claiming doctors failed to keep him alive.

Andy Flanagan's family said they revived him themselves when medical staff stopped his fluids and began end-of-life care. The father of five lived for another month.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn said the case was subject to an official complaint so it was unable to comment.
