@BBCBristol: #Bristol GP surgery set to close

The mother of a child who died following heart surgery has described the events leading up to his death, and their fight for justice since then.

We were saying ‘he’s bleeding’ – they’d get a doctor to come and look or one of the outreach team to come and look – they just weren’t listening to us. They felt we were going on at them but looking back now we weren’t and we were right, and if they’d listened to us and had him back in intensive care, he’d still be here now.

We’ve heard from two MPs from the West who are still in Westminster Abbey.

“Still in Westminster Abbey, will be for hours, trying to save battery. Has been terrifying for everyone but we are safe now. So awful the poor people who have died and their families. Staff are safe. ”

One of the victims was among several pedestrians hit by a car on Westminster Bridge, before it crashed.

I, like many others, have watched the horrors unfolding over the last number of hours in our capital city and my heart sank as I began to realise the tragic consequences of this terrible attack on so many innocent people. I am profoundly saddened to hear about the sad and terrible loss of one of our police family who has been killed as a result of this mindless violence. My deepest and most heartfelt sympathies go out to all those affected by this terrible incident.
