Judge imposes hospital order on Tania Clarence
18th November 2014

The sentencing of Tania Clarence took place at the Old Bailey earlier this morning. 

The mother of three, who pleaded pleaded guilty to manslaughter by diminished responsibility last week for killing her three disabled children at their home in New Malden, has been sentenced to a hospital order. 

Mr Justice Sweeney said she will not be released until she has recovered from her mental illness. 

A prison sentence was rejected.

James Banks was at the Old Bailey in central London and explains what was said this morning in court.
