Nurse questioned on patient deaths

Click to follow
A nurse is being questioned by police after the suspicious deaths of two elderly patients within 24 hours at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London. The man and woman, who died earlier this year, were suffering from diabetes. They are said to have been connected to insulin pumps although it is not known if these were implicated in the deaths.

A hospital spokeswoman said last night: 'The matter is currently under investigation and we do not wish to make any further comment at this time.' A report is to be sent to the Crown Prosecution Sevice.
