The distraught parents of a baby who died after contracting pneumonia have asked police to investigate their claims of negligence by the Royal London Hospital.
Meanwhile, the medical director of another east London hospital has refuted “malicious” texts about the case.
Leah and Chaim Herkovitch’s daughter, Shiri, was four months old when she died at the Royal London on July 11. Her parents had briefly left her bedside to visit their other three children at home in Stamford Hill, north London.
