This is a highly complex and very sensitive case and we appreciate that there is a lot of public interest in it.
It is extremely important to remember that criminal proceedings against Lucy Letby are active and that she has a right to a fair trial.
There should be no reporting, commentary, speculation or sharing of information online (including social media platforms) – or otherwise – which could in any way prejudice legal proceedings.
This is unhelpful, could cause distress to the families of the babies involved and could have a big impact on the ongoing criminal case moving forward.
It is also important to remember that reporting restrictions are in place in relation to this trial. This means that a number of witnesses in the case – and the babies involved – cannot be identified.
If these restrictions are breached then you could be held in Contempt of Court – a criminal offence that can carry a prison sentence of up to 2 years, a fine or both.
Please think before you say or do anything and remember that, at the heart of this case, are a number of bereaved and affected families.
We would ask you to respect their privacy during this difficult time.
