Retired miner, 70, dies following botched surgery

Retired miner, 70, dies following botched surgery A retired miner has died after bungling doctors damaged the blood supply to his kidneys during routine surgery.

Gordon Withers, from Northampton, lost his life due to a catalogue of errors after undergoing an operation to treat an aneurysm.

The botched procedure left him with permanent damage to his kidney and bowel, forcing him to rely on a feeding tube to digest vital nutrients.

Northampton General Hospital, where the surgery took place, have since admitted fault - and said his death could have been avoided. The Daily Mail
