A woman will appear in court tomorrow after police found the remains of four babies at her house.

The decomposed remains were discovered by officers from Merseyside Police during an investigation last September.

Grandmother Bernadette Quirk, 55, formerly of Harlow Close, St Helens, Merseyside, was charged with "concealment of birth" by officers who discovered the remains at the property, they said.

A force spokesman said: "Bernadette Quirk, formerly of Harlow Close, has been bailed to appear at St Helens Magistrates' Court on Thursday 17 June."
