telegraph article dated 33rd september 2018:

"nurse has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of eight babies and the attempted murder of another six newborns at one NHS hospital.

Lucy Letby, 28, is in custody, with police searching her home and car in connection with the deaths at Countess of Chester Hospital.

Police said they are investigating the deaths of 17 babies and 15 non-fatal collapses between June 2015 and June 2016."

"The nurse had worked at the hospital's neonatal unit since graduating from University of Chester in 2011 with a degree in child nursing, and spent time at the unit during her training.

In July 2016, the Countess of Chester Hospital commissioned an independent review of the unit because of concerns about a rise in "unexplained" deaths.

In the same month, the trust also stopped treating the most premature babies, with all those in need of intensive care or high dependency cots sent elsewhere.

But the review, by the Royal College of Paediatricians and Child Health, was unable to explain the deaths, despite the fact consultants noted similarities between the cases.

The report, dated November 2016, highlights a failure to investigate the cases. Although most of the infants underwent a post-mortem, these did not include systemic tests that would have found traces of poisons, or changes in blood sugar levels."
