A midwife who worked at a west Cumbrian hospital is expected to find out today whether she is allowed to continue to practise.

Diana Warwick has been found guilty of 30 allegations of misconduct.

The 56 year old had been working at Whitehaven's West Cumberland Hospital when the incidents happened.

A Nursing and Midwifery Council hearing was told yesterday that she'd dropped a baby on its head and had risked electrocuting a woman in a birthing pool.

She could be struck off or suspended.
