Salt death baby nurse struck off

A Nottingham nurse who admitted giving a four-month-old baby a fatal dose of saline solution has been struck off.

Samuel McIntosh, who was born prematurely on 1 March 2009, was being cared for at the high-dependency unit of the Queen's Medical Centre (QMC).

The Nursing and Midwifery Council found Louisa Swinburn guilty of misconduct and banned her from nursing on Wednesday.

Samuel's parents Sarah and Robert McIntosh said they would never forget their son.
