Betsy Malpass died days after she was targeted in a ‘horrendous’ house burglary (Picture: PA) A pensioner died days after she was targeted in a ‘horrendous’ house burglary. Four intruders posing as members of a water firm tricked their way into Betsy Malpass’s home in Corporation Road, Kate’s Hill, Dudley, West Midlands, at about 3pm on February 8. The helpless 83-year-old was subjected to what Crimestoppers called a ‘horrendous ordeal’, where she was forced to sit on a chair while her mobile phone was placed under a running tap and her life savings stolen. The charity is putting up a £5,000 reward in a bid to find the culprits. It is thought the gang were travelling in a black Audi S-Line car, and CCTV footage of vehicles of interest has been released as part of the appeal. The suspects have been described as white males, with one thought to be in his mid-20s, and around 5ft 10ins tall, with a chubby face. The address of Betsy Malpass, 83, in Dudley, West Midlands, which was raided (Picture: SWNS) He was wearing a black hat and scarf. The following weekend Ms Malpass was taken to hospital, but died three days later. A post-mortem examination discovered no link between the burglary and her death, although investigators said it meant her final days were dominated by the trauma of her ordeal. Crimestoppers said its reward would be available to anyone providing information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for this crime. Gary Murray, Crimestoppers spokesman, said: ‘This burglary ended with terrible consequences after a wonderful older lady died. ‘She had suffered a horrendous ordeal in her own home, where she had lived independently. Video grab from CCTV of the black Audi S-Line car on Corporation Road, Dudley (Picture: SWNS) ‘Her last days were dominated by the stress of this robbery and the loss of all of her life savings. ‘Footage captured by CCTV shows cars that were in the area at the time. ‘These people may have witnessed something significant and we are keen that they come forward and tell us what they know.’ Mr Murray added: ‘If you know who may have been involved in this crime and prefer to remain completely anonymous, please contact our charity. [metro-zone-post-strip] ‘You could be eligible for a reward of up to £5,000. ‘Everyone who contacts Crimestoppers stays 100% anonymous. Always. ‘We’ve kept this promise for over 30 years.’ Mr Murray added: ‘It could be your information that makes all the difference.’ Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

A BABY boy was left brain damaged after bungling doctors misdiagnosed meningitis — dismissing his symptoms as a chest infection, it’s claimed. The parents of 11-month-old Freddie O’Driscoll rushed him to hospital after he was vomiting, wheezing and was very lethargic. Freddie O’Driscoll when he was first ill prior to being taken to hospital Freddie after being discharged from hospital Mum Rachel Henderson, 35, told doctors she feared her son may have meningitis. She says she even pointed to a poster in A&E which warned parents about the devastating disease in babies but was told she was “overreacting”. Freddie was diagnosed with a chest infection and gastroenteritis and Rachel and her partner Tyler O’Driscoll, 31, were told to take him home. But hours later Rachel and Tyler, a carer, took their son back to hospital when his condition deteriorated and he was eventually diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. [quote credit=”Mum Rachel Henderson”]One doctor said it couldn’t be meningitis because Freddie didn’t have a rash[/quote] Now Freddie’s parents, from Hockley, Tamworth, Staffs., are now taking legal action against the hospital after the little lad was left brain damaged. Full-time-mum Rachel said: “Even when we took Freddie back to hospital it still seemed like we were going round in circles. “One doctor said it couldn’t be meningitis because Freddie didn’t have a rash. “Thankfully one doctor thought there was something sinister and arranged antibiotics and further investigations. “If it wasn’t for that doctor Freddie may not be here today” Rachel and Tyler, who also have another son Alfie, became concerned about Freddie when he started vomiting and went a grey colour on September 21, 2016. They rushed him to Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield, West Mids., at 11pm where he was assessed by a nurse. About two-and-a-half hours later he was examined by an A&E doctor but meningitis was not diagnosed. ‘DELAYS IN DIAGNOSIS LOST VITAL TREATMENT TIME’ At about 2.45am the following morning staff raised concerns that Freddie was about to exceed the four hour waiting time in A&E and wanted him transferred to a ward. Just before 4am Freddie was transferred to a clinical assessment ward after Rachel requested a second opinion but he was discharged at around 6.30am. Rachel and Freddie returned to hospital at 6.30pm because he had been vomiting continuously and appeared to become more lethargic. He was given intravenous antibiotics at 12.45am on September 23 before being transferred to a different hospital after he underwent a lumbar puncture. At 4.20pm that day the results confirmed he was suffering from meningitis and he was put into isolation. Freddie has now returned home but has been left brain damaged and suffers from behavioural problems. ‘FREDDIE NOW FACES SO MANY CHALLENGES’ Rachel said: “We face so many challenges now following Freddie’s illness but despite this he is the most adorable little boy we could wish for.” The couple complained to the hospital about Freddie’s treatment and a serious incident report revealed a catalogue of failings. The report, published by University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust which now runs the hospital, found there were delays in Freddie’s care. The report stated there was a “failure to investigate for and make the diagnosis of meningitis” and that “the breakdown in the relationship between Freddie’s mother and the clinical staff meant that concerns about Freddie’s overall condition were not heard.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”15″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Injury lawyers Irwin Mitchell are now investigating the hospital on behalf of the couple. Lawyer Leanne Leighton, who is representing the family, said: “Freddie’s illness has had a profound effect on the family and it is not fully known what long-term impact Freddie’s illness will have on his future. “Rachel and Tyler have a number of concerns about the care Freddie received and how they felt that their concerns were ignored. “The Trust’s own report has identified issues regarding delays and how staff dealt with what was obviously an extremely distressing time for the family. “It is vital that staff uphold the highest standard of professionalism at all times, listen to families and treat patients and their relatives with care and compassion.” The Sun Online approached University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust for a comment.
