A nurse cleared of poisoning patients at a hospital has been suspended for three months after admitting taking drugs from the site.

The decision came after a three-day disciplinary hearing for Rebecca Leighton, 29, who worked at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport.

She has been suspended from nursing by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Ms Leighton spent six weeks in jail but was freed as there was not enough evidence against her.
