Navy ship death rap.

NAVY blunders were to blame for a Wren's death on a warship, an inquest jury said yesterday.

Lt Emma Douglas, 29, was left slumped in her cabin by shipmates who thought she was drunk.

But she was in a diabetic coma and died hours later on HMS Cornwall.

A Navy doc had thought her vomiting bouts were caused by seasickness.

But Emma, of Huntly, Aberdeenshire, had lost four stone in two months.

The Plymouth inquest jury's verdict was death from a diabetic condition but it criticised the care she was given. Emma's mum Cynthia is suing.
