A family has complained to a hospital after maggots were found wriggling in the mouth of an elderly man recovering from a leg injury.

An investigation has been launched into the treatment of patient Abdul Ebrahim, who suffered a stroke in 2014 that left him immobile and unable to speak.

In May he was admitted to a hospital in eastern South Africa with a minor leg injury.
