      Family threaten action over father's death
      A grieving family is threatening legal action against Orkney Islands Council after a chain of events they claim lead to the death of a 61-year-old man.
      The council has admitted reducing care cover for father-of-two, Bob Pritchett, at times when they were short staffed. On one occasion, a night support worker failed to carry out an agreed night visit and Mr Pritchett was left lying on the floor for hours following a fall. The next day, he suffered a second fall and was admitted to Balfour Hospital, where he died a month later.
