THIS is the first picture of nurse Lucy Letby after she was arrested on suspicion of killing eight babies at a hospital in Cheshire.

The 28-year-old sneaked into Hereford Police Station wearing a hat and sunglasses to sign in as part of her bail conditions.

The blonde was released by cops after she was quizzed over the deaths of eight infants at the neonatal ward of the Countess of Chester Hospital.

She was also questioned about the attempted murder of six other newborns.

It is part of an inquiry by Cheshire Police into the deaths of 17 babies and 15 non-fatal collapses at the hospital which were first noticed by consultants in 2015.

Letby was seized at her 180,000 semi-detached home in Blacon, Chester, and cops searched her home.

She has been staying with her parents at their semi-detached cul-de-sac home in Hereford since her arrest on July 3.

Letby arrived at the police station in a blacked-out car driven by her dad and wearing a pink rain mac, broad brimmed sun hat and sunglasses to hide her identity.

She has not been seen since her arrest in July.
