Death toll at hospital now 5

22nd July 2011

Two more patients have died at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport, where a contaminated saline solution was found.

Police said Derek Weaver, 83, died on Thursday morning and a woman, aged 84, died on 14 July with the deaths following those of Tracey Arden, 44, Arnold Lancaster, 71, and George Keep, 84. Police, who think insulin was injected into saline containers, have been given more time to question nurse Rebecca Leighton, 27, of Heaviley in Stockport on suspicion of murder. A 41-year-old man remains critically ill in hospital.
