A hospital has been severelx criticised following the de`th

:00:11.:00:20.

Medics at North Middlesex hospital sent the 26 year-old student home

:00:21.:00:26.

after mistaking her symptoms for a hangover.

:00:27.:00:27.

Phillippa Odlin was found ddad by her flatmate the following day.

:00:28.:00:31.

A report says her death would have been avoided if she'd been

:00:32.:00:34.

Friends say they loved Phillippa Odlin's independence.

:00:35.:00:41.

She was described as the life of the party.

:00:42.:00:43.

When she went to A at North Middlesex Hospital

:00:44.:00:48.

with chest pains, doctors sent her home.

:00:49.:00:52.

After about an hour or so of looking at her, checking on her,

:00:53.:01:00.

they said basically we think she has a hangover and she just needs to

:01:01.:01:04.

The next morning Phillippa was found dead.

:01:05.:01:10.

I sat in my car going berserk, basically.

:01:11.:01:13.

And then I had to ring Jody, her mother, and tell her the sale thing.

:01:14.:01:19.

She hadn't been hungover, she had ketoacidosis,

:01:20.:01:23.

it's a complication of diabdtes which means your body starts

:01:24.:01:26.

This could have been picked up if the hospital had run the two

:01:27.:01:32.

simple tests essential for a diabetic patient.

:01:33.:01:34.

Instead her family says she wasn't taken seriously.

:01:35.:01:37.

Probably the most upsetting aspect of this case, in that she,

:01:38.:01:44.

if you like, was going throtgh A, a young girl, probably had ` drink

:01:45.:01:49.

the night before and her sylptoms were dismissed so easily

:01:50.:01:51.

The medical ombudsman said there were two main failings

:01:52.:02:00.

at North Middlesex - not only did it not spot th`t

:02:01.:02:04.

Phillippa was dying, it also didn't listen

:02:05.:02:05.

They didn't get answers, and actually for them,

:02:06.:02:13.

and for a lot of people, just getting answers and an apology

:02:14.:02:15.

and an assurance and claritx that this won't happen

:02:16.:02:18.

So they quite rightly weren't happy with the answers they got

:02:19.:02:21.

from the hospital initially and they came to us.

:02:22.:02:26.

Jerry now has an ombudsman report and an apology, but something

:02:27.:02:28.

The Metropolitan Police says half the terrorism plots disruptdd

:02:29.:02:38.

in the UK over the past two years involved extremists

:02:39.:02:40.

The details emerged at the launch of a campaign to clamp down

:02:41.:02:51.

Jannat Jalil is here with more details.

:02:52.:02:54.

What can you tell us about this After the mass shooting att`cks in

:02:55.:03:00.

Paris last year the big fear is that there might be a similar attack

:03:01.:03:04.

attempted by terrorists herd in London. Police say their concerns

:03:05.:03:07.

have risen further because last year they seized a record number of guns

:03:08.:03:14.

in the capital. More than 700 firearms, including assault rifles.

:03:15.:03:19.

Police say half of the foildd terror attacks in the last two years have

:03:20.:03:23.

involved some kind of attempt to get guns. The UK is protected bx the

:03:24.:03:28.

fact it has effective securhty services, it has strong border

:03:29.:03:34.

controls, it has strict gun laws, but the police say there is no room

:03:35.:03:38.

for complacency. They are appealing to the public today to come forward

:03:39.:03:42.

if they have any information about anyone they know who might have an

:03:43.:03:48.

illegal weapon. The police's biggest fear is these illegal gangs might

:03:49.:03:49.

sell on their weapons to terrorists. We do know that weapons go

:03:50.:03:54.

to the highest bidder, and one of our concerns

:03:55.:03:56.

is that there is a desire from terrorists to access wdapons,

:03:57.:03:59.

so that they can carry out ` mass casualty attack in this country

:04:00.:04:02.

and we are determined to work with our colleagues

in counterterrorism to do otr very A recent review has suggestdd more

:04:12.:04:15.

of weapons into the UK. The head of MI5 said today that since Jtne 013,

:04:16.:04:23.

12 attempted terror plots h`ve been foiled by security services. That

:04:24.:04:26.

gives you some insight into the challenges they face. Indeed. Thank

:04:27.:04:28.

you very much. Workers in the capital on the London

:04:29.:04:31.

living wage are to be paid an extra 35 pence an hour,

:04:32.:04:34.

taking their rate to ?9.75 , significantly higher

:04:35.:04:37.

than the minimum wage. But while 3,000 companies h`ve

:04:38.:04:38.

signed up to the scheme - it is voluntary, as Tolu Ad`yoye

:04:39.:04:41.

reports. From the cost of housing

:04:42.:04:45.

to transport and food, London is the most expensivd place

:04:46.:04:48.

to live and work in the UK, and it's those on the lowest wages

:04:49.:04:51.

who are hit the hardest. That is a lovely,

:04:52.:04:54.

strong cop of coffee. Today the mayor announced

:04:55.:05:01.

an increase in the so-called living wage, which had been calcul`ted

:05:02.:05:04.

based on how much people ?9.75 an hour will lead

:05:05.:05:07.

to lots of people who work Living in London means you have

:05:08.:05:15.

increased housing costs, you have increased costs and food,

:05:16.:05:21.

there are increased costs whth goods That means Londoners who do a hard

wage isn't compulsory. The Government's set rate

:05:29.:05:31.

which all employers must pax currently peaks that ?7.20 `n hour

:05:32.:05:33.

for over 25s. That's more than ?2.50

:05:34.:05:35.

less than the voluntary rate in the capital,

:05:36.:05:40.

so why would a business choose to pay more when it

:05:41.:05:47.

can legally pay less? I think the benefits

:05:48.:05:50.

outweigh the costs. It might cost us a little bht more,

:05:51.:05:51.

but we have less turnover of staff, we have more committed staff

:05:52.:05:55.

and in the end I think it's better. It just shows that they card

for the living wage. Lots of people working

:06:27.:06:29.

here at the Ritzy and at different picture houses, spend up to 75%

:06:30.:06:32.

of their wage on rent, because, as lots of people know

:06:33.:06:34.

rent in London is incrediblx expensive, and living in London

:06:35.:06:37.

is very expensive. So we need that living wage
