Inquest into pensioners death

After 8 years of campaigning an inquest finally starts today into a pensioners death at a Birmingham care home.

77 year old Leslie Vines from Shirley died 10 days after being admitted to Maypole Nursing Home in 2002.

His daughter Hazel Bickenell told Heart she wants answers... "We want to hear the truth ... I'm hoping we can get to the bottom of how he died"

The inquest, which is infront of a jury is expected to last 3 weeks.
