Dirty equipment led to eleven patients becoming infected with bacteria that can lead to pneumonia, despite the NHS trust knowing about the issue.

Patients were infected with the bugs in two separate incidents, the report from the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust found.

They were all contaminated following problems with the decontamination of equipment in the endoscopy unit at Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.
