Double tragedy

A mother lost her baby to suspected meningitis hours after her son died from hit-and-run injuries. Angela Bretherton, 26, was at her four-year- old son Jamie's bedside in Liverpool's Alder Hey Children's Hospital when eight-week-old Anthony was taken ill. Paramedics rushed to the family home in Toxteth but attempts to revive him failed. Jamie was hit by a BMW on a pedestrian crossing and died from his injuries. Mrs Bretherton, who has two other children, is under sedation.
