Dozens of deaths and stillbirths at maternity units cost hospital trust £103m in damages over decade

More than £100 million has been paid out in damages by one hospital trust over 10 years after its maternity units were accused of being responsible for dozens of deaths and stillbirths.


Channel 4 News can reveal that just weeks before the stillbirth of one baby, which has now been investigated, the Care Quality Commission, found that Mid and South Essex NHS Trust did not always have enough staff to keep women safe – while staff did not identify and escalate safety concerns appropriately.

This is the latest in a long line of maternity scandals and comes amid increasing calls for an independent inquiry into the way babies are born.

Kazakhstan: Dozens killed as security forces open fire on protesters

Dozens of people, including police officers, are reported to have been killed in Kazakhstan, after security forces clashed with protesters in the main city of Almaty.


The government said they had arrested 2,000 people after a night of destruction, looting and running confrontations, although with the internet shut off it’s hard to verify what’s happening there.

Russian troops, said to be leading an alliance of military peacekeepers, have now arrived in the country with reports of fresh gunfire breaking out.
