Hull women calls for apology following daughter's death

33-year-old Sammy Glew, who had cerebral palsy, died weighing just four stone.

A Hull woman has called on a specialist residential home to apologise for the care for her late daughter, which led to damages being awarded.

33-year-old Sammy Glew, who had cerebral palsy, died weighing just four stone, at a bungalow run by the Avocet Trust.

Her mum, Gwynneth Hunter has secured damages for neglect after taking legal action.

Mrs Hunter, who had looked after Sammy for 32 years, says she was a brave until the end. 

She adds that her story needs to be out, so other families know to be careful when considering putting someone into care. 

The Avocet Trust has been approached for a response.
