The BBC report “Leo Stacey died from a rare bowel condition on 6 October 2015 after suffering sickness and dehydration. He had been taken to A&E at Luton and Dunstable Hospital by ambulance but several attempts at inserting an intravenous line into a vein failed. Recording a narrative verdict, Coroner Martin Oldham said: “Sadly they did not address his hydration or solve the dehydration fully until he died.”

Leo’s parents, Nathalie Aubry-Stacey, 38, and Marc Stacey, 37, from Harpenden, told Ampthill Coroner’s Court they believed he could have been saved.”
