Surgery delay.

THE parents of a toddler who sliced off the tip of one of his fingers were told by a hospital nurse to take it home and put it in the fridge, it has emerged.

Tameside General Hospital in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, advised the parents of 19-month-old Dale Ashton to take him home for the night, pack the fingertip in ice and put it in the fridge.

He had an operation at Booth Hall Children's Hospital but it failed. His parents, Lee Ashton, 34, and Samantha Sykes, 37, from Hyde, Greater Manchester, are upset about the delay.
