A YOUNG mother claims her baby was turned away from a hospital because staff were too busy to examine him.

Little Teddy McGill, 10 months, started shaking at his home in Gosfield Road, Dagenham, on Sunday night (February 17).

His worried parents took him out of bed but the shaking got worse, his eyes rolled back in his head and he started making a wheezing sound.

Concerned mum Lindsay Boot, 30, phoned an ambulance on the advice of her mother Sharon at around 9.30pm.

When paramedics arrived the baby was not responding properly and, although he soon came around, they decided to take him to nearby Queen's Hospital in Romford.
