Police say they are investigating whether an alleged cover-up of baby deaths at a Cumbria hospital amounts to a criminal offence.
A senior hospital inspector has denied reports that she ordered the suppression of a report into the deaths.
ITV News Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen reports.
The former head of the Care Quality Commission accused of conspiring to suppress a report into NHS hospital deaths has denied any involvement in a "cover-up" in an interview with the Independent.
Cynthia Bower told the newspaper she and her former colleagues had been “hung out to dry” by the CQC and that she had been forced to leave her home and go "on the run" to escape the media.
Bower said in the interview: “This is a report that has hung people out to dry for something we categorically deny.
“I am unemployable. I have been accused of suppressing a report about babies dying in hospital. Who wants to give me a job?”
The 57-year-old added that she had "no reason to be concerned" about a possible police investigation into the alleged cover-up.
Cumbria Police is to examine an independent report into an alleged cover-up by the NHS regulator, the Care Quality Commission, over deaths at a maternity unit at Furness General Hospital.

Cumbria Constabulary is considering the content of the lengthy CQC report that was released last week.
A dedicated team of detectives will examine the report in detail and decide whether any further action is required.
We will keep the Metropolitan Police informed as appropriate.
We are committed to examining the report thoroughly, and it takes time to do this properly.
We anticipate examining the report will take three weeks.
