Scandal-plagued North Middlesex University Hospital's cleaners claim hygiene standards drop under new contractor, according to an article on the Mirror website.

One cleaner who has worked there for nine years said: “It breaks my heart. I don’t feel we can clean wards properly. It never used to be like this under the old company. We were treated fairly and got the equipment we need to do the job.”

Meanwhile, the family of a war hero who died after being crushed by falling medical equipment at the hospital claim a probe that was promised never happened.
