VIDEO: Healthcare worker arrested on suspicion of murdering eight babies

Detectives have been searching a nurse's home after a healthcare worker was held on suspicion of the murder of eight babies and the attempted murder of another six at a neonatal unit in an English hospital.

Officers are said to have arrived at the home of Lucy Letby, 28, early on Tuesday, hours before police announced a female "healthcare professional" had been arrested in a probe into the deaths of 17 infants at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
