The U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin has removed the two top officials at the Manchester Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The decision followed a story published in the Boston Globe this weekend.

Members of the Globe's Spotlight team were contacted by a group of whistle blowers concerned with conditions at the hospital. Among the conditions were an operating room that needed to be abandoned due to a fly infestation and cancer patients unable to book appointments with an oncologist.
