A children's nurse today pleaded not guilty to the murder of eight babies and the attempted murder of 10 others.



Lucy Letby , 31, repeated 'not guilty' 18 times as the charges were put to her over a videolink from HMP Peterborough, where she is on remand.



The Chester University graduate is alleged to have murdered five boys and three girls while working at the neonatal unit of Countess of Chester Hospital, where she was once the face of a £3million fundraising campaign.



The medic is also charged with the attempted murder of five boys and five girls, with all alleged offences committed between June 2015 and June 2016.
