Woman, 42, found hanged in hospital A&E department

A woman has been found hanged in a hospital A&E department. The body of the 42-year-old was discovered in a side room at the Royal Blackburn Hospital in Lancashire shortly before 1am yesterday. The shocking discovery is being investigated by police. A file has been prepared for the coroner’s office. East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust (ELHT), which runs the hospital, declined to say whether the woman- from Burnley – was considered a suicide risk when she arrived at the department, or whether she had any known psychiatric problems. Dr Ian Stanley, acting medical director at ELHT, said: “Our sympathies are with the patient’s family at this difficult time. “This tragic incident is presently the subject of an initial police investigation and the trust will make no further comment at this time.”
