Riyad Ali died nearly 15 years ago, on July 16, 2005, at Ipswich Hospital.

The newborn's health took a turn for the worse after a natural delivery and he was taken to resuscitation.

His mother, Bilkis Ali, visited her baby son over the next 24 hours but at 5pm the following day his condition had deteriorated.

He died less than an hour later.

Riyad's inquest, which has been rescheduled from July 2019, is being heard at Suffolk Coroner's Court in Ipswich today.

It is expected to last three days.

His family want to get to the bottom of what happened to their son.

Medics from the East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Ipswich Hospital, will be at the inquest.
