Iris Hull before her fall

An 87-year-old great-grandmother has been left fighting for her life after a fall at a scandal-hit care home, it can be revealed.

Iris Hull is unable to walk or talk as a result of a bleed on her brain following an accident at Clifton Nursing Home, which happened on the same day she was diagnosed with Covid-19.

It is now one month since Mrs Hull, who saved lives during the Troubles when she carried a bomb out of a shop before it exploded, fell at the Belfast home.
