An independent review was established in 2017 to look into a cluster of baby deaths at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Hospital trust. It initially focused on 23 cases but since then, hundreds more families have come forward. The investigation is now looking at more than 1,200 cases, including deaths of babies and mothers and babies who have been left with permanent brain damage with incidents ranging from 1979 to this year. A leaked report last year found that clinical malpractice was allowed to continue unchecked for 40 years at a trust with a "toxic" culture. West Mercia Police confirmed on Tuesday it is probing claims made about Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Hospital Trust.

. Police confirmed that they met with Ms Ockenden and representatives from the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS Improvement on Tuesday. In a statement, Assistant Chief Constable Geoff Wessell said a police investigation will explore whether there is evidence to support a criminal case “against the Trust or any individuals involved”.
