Mother's death: Family claim medical negligence

A pathologist from the Home Office flies into Gibraltar today to carry out an autopsy on an 83-year old mother who died on Easter Sunday. The funeral has therefore not yet taken place.

One of her daughters, as spokesperson for the family, claims that their mother, Anita Valverde, was wrongly diagnosed.

It was several days after being seen by a hospital doctor that an operation took place.

A report has been filed with the Coroner's Office.

The Police are carrying out an investigation into the woman's death following the claims made by the family.
