Parents call for inquiry into rickets death hospitals

A young couple acquitted of murdering their four-month-old son have called for an inquiry into two London hospitals responsible for his care.

Rohan Wray, 22, and Chana Al-Alas, 19, of London, were accused of abusing baby Jayden but his fractures were later found to have been caused by rickets.

They told the BBC that the Great Ormond Street and University College hospitals should have diagnosed the disease.

The hospitals have defended their care of Jayden before his death in 2009.
