A teenage girl whose body went into shutdown after a stroke could not have been saved, a coroner has ruled.

Aimee Garnett, 18, suffered brain damage following the stroke brought on by an inflamed heart muscle and which led to cardiac and respiratory failure, Doncaster Coroner’s Court heard.

The court had heard that doctors at Doncaster Royal Infirmary had wanted to carry out MRI scans on Aimee of Lynden Avenue, Adwick - but were unable to do so because they were only carried out during the week and Aimee had been admitted at a weekend in October 2009.
