  • on independent review into the deaths of babies at an NHS trust has revealed a Siris of failures, including, in some cases, the blaming of mothers for their babies dying.

  • An inquiry was set up three years ago to look at fatalities and injuries at Shrewsbury and Telford Trust between 2020 18.

  • It started by looking into 23 cases of a baby dying or suffering brain injury or of a mother's death.

  • But the review has now expanded to nearly 1900 cases, which also include women or babies who were injured during birth.

  • In June this year, a police the police launched a criminal investigation into whether there was enough evidence to support a case against the trust or against any of the individuals involved.

  • Our social affairs correspondent Michael Buchanan has been speaking to to families whose Children died.

  • You read the story off a baby on it, died story of another baby and it died.

  • I physically felt sick as I read the report.

  • Without these two families, the appalling care exposed today would not have been revealed, both motivated by personal grief.

  • In 2016, Pepe Griff has died after staff failed to act on her parents concerns.

  • Seven years earlier, Kate Stanton Davies died after midwives failed to properly monitor her.

  • Pippa should never have died.

  • We campaigned after Kate's death for them to learn from Kate's death if they had learned Pepper would not have died.

  • I feel a huge weight of responsibility that we didn't fight hard enough for years.

  • The trust ignored them, insisted Montana.

  • To care was good.

  • Today's findings, based on an analysis of 250 cases between 4000 and 18, shows her right the families wear.

  • The review says that mothers were blamed for the deaths of their babies.

  • There was a reluctance to carry out Caesarian sections, often with catastrophic consequences.

  • 13 women died in labor or shortly afterwards, higher than the England average.

  • Some of the deaths were never investigated.

  • Can you explain why it took two families toe?

  • Highlight these failures?

  • I can't explain that.

  • I will be honest.

  • There have been days where I've met family after family, and I meet them privately in Shrewsbury, where I have sat down and cried because as a fellow human being, you can't do anything other than that the trust wouldn't take questions today, but did say that implement all 27 recommendations as the chief executive of the trust.

  • Now I want to say personally and on behalf of the trust that we are very sorry for all of the pain and distress caused to these families.

  • The full report into all 1862 cases before the review will be published next year.

  • Until then, these families will continue to push for real improvements.

  • When your Children say to you, Why are you doing this again?

  • Mom, why do you put yourself through this?

  • It's because we don't want any other families to go through the pain that we have.

  • That was Caylee Griffiths ending that report by Michael Buchanan.
