Health campaigner Julie Bailey who brought to light failings at Stafford Hospital and called for a public inquiry has been named the second most powerful woman in Britain.

Miss Bailey was number two in the Independent's 10 Most Powerful Women list, behind murdered Stephen Lawrence's mother Doreen Lawrence.

She called for other people who had experienced similar problems to get in touch and was inundated with calls.

Miss Bailey, who used to run a cafe in Stafford town centre, was also awarded a CBE in the Queen's New Year's Honours list.
