The police case against Dr Jane Barton has been closed after the Crown Prosecution Service said there was no realistic prospect of a gross negligence manslaughter conviction for the deaths of elderly patients at Gosport War Memorial Hospital.

The case re-opened, 12 years after a relative first contacted police, when Dr Barton was found guilty of serious professional misconduct and an inquest in 2009 found medication she prescribed contributed to five deaths.
