Police have launched a criminal investigation into a number of deaths at a Glasgow hospital, including that of 10-year-old Milly Main. It comes as a separate public inquiry into the building of several Scottish hospitals is being held.
Milly's mother recently told the inquiry her child's death was "murder".
A review in May found an infection which contributed to Milly's death was probably caused by the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital environment.
The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service has now instructed police to investigate the deaths of Milly, two other children and 73-year-old Gail Armstrong at the Glasgow campus. It is understood the probe could lead to criminal charges or a fatal accident inquiry.
A spokesperson said: "The investigation into the deaths is ongoing and the families will continue to be kept updated in relation to any significant developments."
The Crown Office added that it was committed to supporting the Scottish Hospitals Inquiry and "contributing positively" to its work.
