Russells Hall Hospital death leaves children motherless

A woman says her daughter's death at Russells Hall Hospital leaves six children without a mother.

An independent inquiry has been ordered into the Dudley hospital after the deaths of 54 patients over a six-month period.

Natalie Billingham was 33 years old when she died at the hospital in March from a form of sepsis, leaving behind a nine-month-old and five other children.

Dudley Group NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, said it had the region's lowest mortality rate and had appointed a new clinical lead for urgent and emergency care.
