First and foremost I send my most sincere condolences to the Cartlidge family. My thoughts at this time are with the family and also with the paramedics and staff who dealt with this sad situation.
I have been in touch with Jeremy Hunt and with Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust about this case. There of course will be a full investigation into the circumstances surrounding Callum's death and the coroner has been informed. As and when more information becomes available the family will be kept fully up-to-date.
Redditch has been my home for nearly 20 years and it has been a huge honour to have represented its great people for the past seven.
Sadly due to ill health I have decided not to stand for re-election. There is nothing more important or rewarding than helping people, however I need to be fully fit to be able to undertake the job properly.
I am immensely grateful to all the fantastic people I have met during my time as a Member of Parliament and want to say a huge thank you for all of their support.
Redditch deserves strong and stable leadership. Every vote for Theresa May and your local Conservative, Rachel Maclean, on 8 June will strengthen our hand in negotiations to get the best possible deal for Brexit and beyond, leaving Britain stronger and better off for the future.
