A mother-of-seven has died from cancer one month after visiting a doctor with a 'chest infection' following the birth of her youngest child.

Samantha King, 42, was told she had advanced lung and breast cancer after she was given scans when antibiotics failed to clear a 'chest infection' just two weeks after she delivered Lilah.

The former nurse from Tredworth, Gloucester, was given weeks to live after she discovered the disease had spread to her lymph nodes, blood, bones and spine.
