IlieA pensioner died just an hour after a nurse rejected pleas to call an ambulance from colleagues who feared he was seriously ill.

War veteran Harold Massey, 83, had been transferred to a Bupa nursing home after suffering neglect while in residential care which resulted in his right leg being amputated.
