Jack Adcock death: Nurse guilty of manslaughter


An agency nurse has been found guilty of causing the death of a six-year-old boy by gross negligence.

Jack Adcock was taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary in February 2011 suffering from vomiting and diarrhoea and later developed sepsis. 

Nurse Isabel Amaro, 47, from Manchester, was found guilty of manslaughter after three days of deliberations at Nottingham Crown Court.

Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba, 38, and Nurse Theresa Taylor, 55, both of Leicester, are facing the same charge.

The jury will continue their deliberations on Bawa-Garba and Taylor tomorrow.
