Police at 'very early stages of investigation' after dummy taped to baby's face in hospital

Staffordshire Police say they are in the very early stages of an investigation after a baby boy was found with a dummy taped to his face in Stafford Hospital.

Officers from our Protecting Vulnerable People Department are at the very early stages of investigating a complaint concerning the treatment of a baby boy by a member of staff at Stafford Hospital earlier this month.

The baby boy, who was four months old at the time, was not harmed as a result. We are liaising closely with his family and the NHS Trust concerning the matter.
