Shrewsbury Hospital baby deaths review welcomed by mum

A mother from Powys whose son died at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital has welcomed a review into baby deaths.

NHS England and NHS Improvement is to investigate a cluster of baby deaths at hospitals under the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust.

Kate and Andrew Barnett from Newtown lost their son Jenson two days after his birth in June 2013. He died from brain trauma caused during an unsuccessful forceps delivery.

Mrs Barnett said: "When you go to hospital to have a baby, you don't expect to come home without a baby".

The trust has apologised "unreservedly".
