LONDON (Reuters) - A 26-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of the murder of three patients at a hospital in Stockport, Greater Manchester, police said.
The woman, reported to be a hospital employee by the BBC, has been detained following a series of suspicious deaths at Stepping Hill hospital in the past month.
A 44-year-old woman and two men aged 84 and 71, named in the media as Tracey Arden, George Keep and Arnold Lancaster, are believed to have died because of contaminated saline solution.
Police said hospital staff contacted them earlier this month after discovering that the solution had been tampered with, resulting in a high number of patients having low blood sugar levels.
