A UK hospital health care "professional" has been arrested on suspicion of murdering eight babies and trying to kill another six at a neonatal unit in northwest England.

Detectives have been investigating baby deaths at the Countess of Chester Hospital in Chester for more than a year.

Cheshire Constabulary said officers arrested a female "health care professional" Tuesday on suspicion of murder and attempted murder. The force did not identify the woman or give details of her job.

Police are investigating the deaths of 17 babies and 15 "non-fatal collapses" at the unit between March 2015 and June 2016.
