A family from north London want answers from the Portuguese authorities after their infant son died on holiday.

Adonis Powell-Larochelle fell ill early into the family's holiday and was treated in hospital, but died 48 hours later of sepsis on 19 May.

His parents Deza Powell and Paul Larochelle, from Enfield, say they want "justice" for their 10-month-old, and an apology for how they were treated.

Portugal's Ministry of Health told the BBC it "deeply regrets the outcome".

Warning: the following details may be distressing.

His parents said Adonis had been "eating fine" and was sleeping well, but the following evening got a temperature.

When he began struggling to breathe, on the second day of their holiday, Ms Powell took him to hospital but, as they had travel insurance, they were confident that he would be well looked after.

They say they were told Adonis probably had a chest infection, and were sent home with an asthma pump, ibuprofen and paracetamol.
