Police dig garden of nurse held in baby deaths probe

By Adam Lusher

Police were last night digging in the back garden of the nurse arrested in connection with the deaths of babies at the Countess of Chester Hospital.

Officers carrying spades and rakes were seen entering the Chester home of Lucy Letby.

They were been spotted using a step ladder to climb over Ms Letby's back garden fence, seemingly to search woodland next to her property.

It was not immediately clear what the police searching the property were looking for.

Ms Letby (28) is believed to have been arrested by detectives investigating the deaths of 17 babies and 15 non-fatal collapses at the hospital between March 2015 and July 2016.
