Baby Lizzie’s parents, Anne and Graeme Dixon – The longest wait – written by Heather Mills at Private Eye

A COUPLE’S 13-year battle for an inquiry into the blunders that led to the brain damage and subsequent death of their baby daughter has been dealt a blow after NHS England suddenly pulled the plug on a planned investigation.
