A jury has found a Portishead nurse not guilty of the manslaughter of a 10-year-old girl.
Carrie-Anne Nash was accused of being ‘grossly negligent’ when she treated Phoebe Willis in Weston General Hospital in 2012.
A jury at Bristol Crown Court found her not guilty of manslaughter yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon.
Phoebe had a rare genetic disorder, which meant she had to be fed through a tube.
Ms Nash, aged 34 and of Tansy Lane, was called in to the hospital as a specialist working for a company called Nutricia to replace the tube.
