CHILD killer Lucy Letby may be stripped of her nursing credentials at a hearing later this month.

In August, Letby, 33, of Hereford, was sentenced to 14 whole life orders after she was convicted of the murders of seven babies and the attempted murders of six others, with two attempts on one of her victims.

The offences took place in the hospital's neonatal unit, where Letby worked, between June 2015 and June 2016.

But despite the convictions, which make her one of Britain's worst female serial killers and mean that she will spend the rest of her life in prison, she has not yet been removed from the nursing register.

Regulator the Nursing and Midwifery Council has now listed a two-day hearing to decide if Letby should be removed from the register on December 12 in London.

Letby also faces a retrial in June for one count of attempted murder.
