Appeal to hospital after baby death.

A FATHER whose baby son suffered irreversible brain damage at birth has urged hospital bosses to make sure lessons have been learnt following his child's death.

Noah Tyler died more than 10 months after a traumatic delivery at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, in February 2011.

His inquest today heard the midwife delivering him had not spotted signs of foetal distress - later leading him to be born with cerebral palsy.

Coroner Mary Hassell, who recorded a narrative verdict, said gross failure to provide "basic medical attention" was a factor in the death.

Noah's father, Hywel, whose wife Coleen recently gave birth to a healthy baby boy, said: "We know the unit is a good one and the recent birth of our second child has shown that they do know what they are doing.

"But today has shown that through the failings (that were made), our little boy isn't here any more - and there's no good reason why he shouldn't have been."
