Mother calls for group B strep tests after her baby died

The parents of a one-day-old girl who died from an infection contracted during birth want mothers to know they can be tested for the bug.

Pippa Griffiths died of a group B streptococcus (GBS) - the biggest cause of meningitis in newborns.

She had been born at home in Shropshire, but was airlifted to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital to be treated by a specialist crew from Birmingham.

Pippa's parents, Kayleigh and Colin Griffiths, want mothers to have the information so they can choose to be tested.
