Basingstoke girl died 'after swallowing spare battery from television's 3D glasses'

Unbeknown to her parents, little Francesca Asan (pictured) went into a set of drawers at the family home in Basingstoke and took the 2cm battery out of its packaging, before putting it in her mouth.

Tests showed the small three-volt lithium battery had eroded through her oesophagus into her artery, causing 'catastrophic' bleeding which led to her death.
