Lucy Letby ‘attacked at least four babies’ in desperate bid to bond with doctor

Lucy Letby: Cheshire Constabulary share footage from arrest

Lucy Letby was deeply infatuated with a married doctor while she was carrying out a grisly murder spree at the Countess of Chester Hospital. The killer nurse was found guilty earlier today of murdering seven babies and trying to kill another six. It’s now been revealed that the neonatal nurse carried on a suspected affair with a married doctor at the hospital.

The pair swapped hundreds of messages for hours at a time, often late into the night.

The nurse and the medic spent time at her home alone, went on day trips to London, and had meals together in their free time.

It is suggested that the 33-year-old was so infatuated with the doctor that she attacked and murdered babies knowing he would come and help out on shift.

The doctor applied for anonymity at the start of the trial and cannot be identified for legal reasons.

The content of many messages between the two that were found on her mobile phone was not shown to the jury.

During the trial, Letby denied being “in love” with the doctor and insisted they were simply best friends.

However, Letby’s friends often teased her about their “flirty” relationship, according to messages from her work colleagues.

Prosecutor Nick Johnson KC repeatedly referred to him as Letby’s ‘boyfriend’ during the trial.

The doctor gave evidence against Letby during the case, prompting the nurse to break down in tears and attempt to leave the courtroom in a dramatic scene.

The prosecutor alleged that Letby was so infatuated with the married man that she attacked and murdered at least of the four babies knowing he would be the one summoned to help.

Mr Johnson said the nurse wanted to help save the babies with the doctor as a way to get closer to him.

One note found at Letby’s home had revealed that she had written his name over and over again next to love hearts.

She also wrote: “My best friend…LOVE…I loved you and I think you knew that…I wanted you to stand by me but you didn’t.”

Letby also searched for the doctor’s spouse multiple times on Facebook.

After more than 20 days of deliberating, a jury at Manchester Crown Court found Letby guilty of seven murders and an additional six attempted murders today, making her the UK’s most prolific modern child serial killer.

The verdict marks the end of one of Britain’s longest-running murder trials with the case, which began in October 2022 when it was scheduled to take six months, lasting more than nine.
