Good evening. for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:13.

It's been revealed that a 19`year`old man has admitted

:00:14.:00:15.

murdering Jamie McMahon in a churchyard in Northampton.

:00:16.:00:17.

The admission came as a second man, Michael Francis, went on trhal,

:00:18.:00:20.

also charged with the murder, last October.

:00:21.:00:22.

The court was told Mr McMahon was killed for the ?20 in his w`llet.

:00:23.:00:32.

He had been drinking and was on his own. Easy pickings, just wh`t they

:00:33.:00:41.

were looking for. With ten linutes of leaving this takeaway, J`mie

:00:42.:00:47.

McMahon was robbed and killdd, not by just one man according to the

:00:48.:00:53.

prosecution but by two. Thex were in it together on a criminal vdnture.

:00:54.:00:59.

This is the churchyard wherd his body was found the next day. He had

:01:00.:01:04.

been kicked, punched and st`mped on. Left four dead face down. CCTV

:01:05.:01:13.

showed their demeanour afterwards. Relaxed, unbothered, with a callous

:01:14.:01:20.

indifference to what they h`d done. CCTV showed Michael France's

:01:21.:01:25.

dropping his wallet into a bend At the petrol station they spent some

:01:26.:01:29.

of the money on crisps, Cork and cigarettes. The phone was briefly

:01:30.:01:37.

activated. Jamie McMahon lost his life for ?20 and a mobile phone sold

:01:38.:01:47.

for ?10 to either. The 26 she ruled was described as an amazing person,

:01:48.:01:48.

happy all the time. The family of a dying man

:01:49.:01:50.

from Stevenage who saw food and water withdrawn from hil for

:01:51.:01:53.

a week before he died have welcomed The old system,

:01:54.:01:56.

known as the Liverpool Care Pathway, was scrapped after concerns that it

:01:57.:02:00.

was being used inappropriatdly. Now hospitals must consult patients

:02:01.:02:02.

and their families more closely When Bob Guild fell and fractured

:02:03.:02:17.

his skull last year he was taken to hospital in Cambridge. The

:02:18.:02:23.

69`year`old was placed on lhfe support but his condition dhd not

:02:24.:02:26.

improve Saudi was put on thd Liverpool care pathway with food and

:02:27.:02:30.

fluids stopped but it was more than a week until he died. An

:02:31.:02:36.

investigation found it was hn his best interests but his family said

:02:37.:02:43.

they were not consulted. My dad was clutching at the year and m`king

:02:44.:02:48.

noises like a wounded animal. Everything was stripped frol him and

:02:49.:02:53.

we were told he was on LCP. We were absolutely devastated. It w`s

and independent review found it was not always being appropriatdly

applied and recommended it be scrapped. New guidelines have been

:03:15.:03:20.

published with the focus on providing care tailored to dach

:03:21.:03:24.

individual patient, supporthng them to eat and drink for as long as they

:03:25.:03:29.

wish to and taking decisions in accordance with the patient's needs

:03:30.:03:34.

and wishes, and reviewing them regularly and revising as

:03:35.:03:38.

appropriate. The family welcomed the approach. My dad would have had a

:03:39.:03:46.

dignified death and it is a shame it was not in place last year. We think

:03:47.:03:54.

it will be good for other f`milies. The guidance aims to help p`tients

:03:55.:03:59.

and relatives know what to dxpect and doctors can ensure a patient's

:04:00.:04:03.

final hours are as dignified as possible.

:04:04.:04:04.

Well, earlier I spoke to thd Health Minister Norman Lamb about the new

:04:05.:04:07.

system, and asked if it would prevent families like the Gould s

:04:08.:04:10.

The priorities are absolutely focused on the individual p`tient

:04:11.:04:22.

and the family and the need to have an individual care plan drawn up, so

:04:23.:04:25.

my hope very much is that f`milies like that really do see a

:04:26.:04:32.

difference. You can never gtarantee they will not be feel years of care

Northampton General Hospital have been told not to go to work

in a dispute over their contracts. Members

:04:53.:04:55.

of the Unite union had planned a work to rule, but hospital lanagers

Outside Northampton General, dozens of biomedical staff say thex have

The hospital says it is not a decision it has taken lightly but

insists patient safety will not be jeopardised and says it has a

well`developed contingency plan to minimise disruption. We want to get

them back on the table to ndgotiate and get an improvement. We have even

offered more but they have failed to respond. Management say thex remain
