The arrest comes as part of a long-running investigation into a higher than expected number of baby deaths at the hospital.

Detectives are also investigating 15 non-fatal collapses at the neonatal unit between March 2015 and July 2016. The cases being investigated involve families from the Cheshire and north Wales area. Police were asked to investigate the deaths of eight babies at Chester in May 2017, a probe which has since widened to include nine more. source

Cheshire Police have not officially named Letby as the suspect but said the woman arrested remains in custody.
