A grandfather who beat cancer was wrongly told the disease had returned and left to die under controversial 'death pathway', his devastated family said today.
Doctors ruled they could do nothing more for Jack Jones, 76, and placed him on the Liverpool Care Pathway - a controversial policy under which medication and food and water are steadily withdrawn. He died within two weeks.
But tests after his death found that his cancer had not come back, and he was in fact suffering from pneumonia brought on by a chest infection.
