An 87-year-old grandmother left critically ill after a fall at a scandal-hit care home has been sent home from hospital to die.

Iris Hull has been reunited with her family at her house in south Belfast, where she will receive palliative care for the combined effects of a devastating head injury and Covid-19.

In a further blow for her family, the Belfast Trust sent a bill for her room at Clifton Nursing Home for the month she spent fighting for her life in hospital.
