Foster home reported after teenager's death

After a 15-year-old girl was found dead in a Lund foster home, her biological mother has reported the home for negligence.

On Saturday morning the girl was found lying in bed, not breathing. She suffered from glandular fever, and Lund police say they are investigating whether the care home could have saved the child's life.

The home is run by the private Attendo firm, and their spokeswoman says to TT that they followed the guidelines, and that if they felt they had failed the girl then they would have reported themselves.
