A woman from London dies after being bitten by her cat

A woman with an infected cat bite died from sepsis after she was sent home from hospital without the proper treatment.

Newham General Hospital apologised on Tuesday 11th June for the death of 61-year-old Gabriele Kreichgauer.

She was discharged without antibiotics and died two days later.
