Chester hospital baby deaths to be investigated by police

The deaths of eight babies at a neonatal unit with a “higher than usual” mortality rate are to be investigated by police.

Countess of Chester Hospital reported “a greater number of baby deaths and collapses than normally expected” between June 2015 and July 2016.

The hospital trust contacted police after a clinical review found no “definitive explanation” for the rise.

It said it had “continuing concerns” about the deaths.
