A jury has found a doctor guilty of the manslaughter by gross negligence of a six-year-old boy.

Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba, 38, of Leicester, was accused of medical failings in the death of Jack Adcock after he was admitted to Leicester Royal Infirmary on the morning of 18 February 2011 with severe vomiting, diarrhoea and breathing difficulties. She was found guilty on Wednesday by a 10-2 majority verdict after the jury deliberated for nearly 25 hours.
