Child heart units: Family on risk to Leicester unit

Leicester's Glenfield Hospital is one of 11 which could have to stop performing heart surgery on children following a review.

Anthony Brown's son Jed was treated at the hospital, having first been seen at the city's Royal Infirmary.

Anthony told the BBC it would have been much more difficult for the family had Jed been operated on at the next nearest child heart unit in Birmingham, 40 miles away.
