Dead baby ‘left in plastic bag’

‘The body of a stillborn baby was put in a supermarket carrier bag after it was delivered and left with the parents for two hours as they waited at hospital. [..]

The body was put in a bag when an ambulance took her to the Royal Sussex County Hospital. She said it stayed in the bag while she waited in A&E. [..]

She said she had to wait in a room in A&E for two hours without being examined, and that during that time her baby was in a plastic bag on top of a cabinet in the room with her and her husband, Michael.

She also said that when she was moved to another ward, the bag was placed on a windowsill.’
