A mum discharged her toddler from hospital because she feared the room was not secure enough.

Tania Ward’s son Harrison, aged two, who has special needs, suffered a seizure and hit his head on the floor at home in Leslie Park, Burnham, on February 21.

His mother took him to Broomfield Hospital but after a long wait and becoming concerned about Harrison's safety she discharged her son.

A hospital spokesman said: "We have not received a complaint from Ms Ward or the family, but we would be happy if they wish to meet with them and discuss any concerns which they may have.”
