GBH denied; NORTH TODAY: COURT.
A NURSE has denied he broke an elderly dementia sufferer's arm by dragging her down a hospital corridor. Staff nurse Paul French, pictured, is said to have "snapped" and grabbed 80-year-old Mary Irving, whose behaviour was difficult to deal with because of her condition. Prosecutors claim the 49-year-old became enraged with Mrs Irving, who has since died, after she threw a glass of milk on the floor while wandering around at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, in January 2009. French, of Mary Street, Blaydon, Gateshead, denies causing grievous bodily harm.
