The jury in the inquest into a woman who died in hospital in Ireland four days after suffering a miscarriage has returned a verdict of medical misadventure.

Savita Halappanavar, 31, died in University Hospital Galway last October.

Her family claimed she might have survived if she had been given an abortion.

The inquest has heard the cause of death was septic shock and E coli.
