Nurse tells of ‘An­gel of Death’ hell

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A NURSE wrongly ac­cused of tam­per­ing with a saline so­lu­tion caus­ing the death of three pen­sion­ers has told of her “night­mare” or­deal.

Re­becca Leighton, 27, was branded an “an­gel of death” by the gut­ter press af­ter the killings at Step­ping Hill Hos­pi­tal in Stock­port, Greater Manch­ester.

Yes­ter­day she spoke of her re­lief af­ter all charges against her were dropped ear­lier this month.

But she com­plained that the me­dia had to­tally de­monised her and she was now afraid to go out de­spite her in­no­cence.

She told ITV1’s This Morn­ing: “I am liv­ing at my par­ents’, I am not liv­ing where I was liv­ing. I’m not work­ing, I can’t go out­side my house with­out peo­ple tak­ing pic­tures of me.

“I can’t walk down the street on my own be­cause I’m a bit scared. Some­one has al­ways got to be with me all the time. It’s far from nor­mal.”

The po­lice probe into the deaths at the hos­pi­tal is con­tin­u­ing.
