A grieving mum has demanded police re-open a probe into her dead baby - after finding a “chilling” photo of her with a “clingy” Lucy Letby.

Emily Morris, 35, was in the Countess of Chester Hospital with her newborn son Alvin while the killer nurse worked there.

She described Letby as “clingy” and claims she was brushed off at the time when she raised concerns about her behaviour to the hospital.

The serial baby killer was even with Alvin the night before he died in 2013 and Emily claims she reported her anxieties about Letby to the hospital - but says these were ignored.

After unearthing a 'chilling' picture of Alvin with Letby at his christening, Ms Morris has now called for an investigation to be re-opened into his death.

Police told her back in 2018 there were no suspicious circumstances - but after Letby's murder conviction last month, she said she wants it looked at again.

Ms Morris, from Deeside, Wales, said: "Alvin died while she [Lucy] was looking after him.

"That's why we think she did something - Alvin should still be alive.

"She was very clingy, she constantly wanted to be around the babies.

"I thought she was kind but you can tell there was something wrong with her.."

Letby was found guilty of murdering seven babies and attempting to kill six others at the Countess of Chester Hospital between June 2015 and June 2016.

Alvin was born with muscular dystrophy - a condition marked by progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles - but was making progress.

Ms Morris said Alvin's death was a shock to everyone due to the progress he was making.

Police told her in 2018 that they had not found any suspicious circumstances in Alvin's case - but she does not accept that.

She said: "He was a happy little baby, we found out he died after we walked into the room and they passed Alvin to me and said how he was already dead.

"He was making progress but then he died in his sleep.

"I find it freaky how she could do what she did to babies.

"All those babies have suffered because of her and they are not being remembered."

The hospital declined to comment.
