Gosport hospital drug deaths: Police identify 19 suspects

Nineteen suspects have been identified by police as part of a new inquiry into hundreds of deaths at a hospital.

An independent panel found 456 patients died after being given opiates inappropriately at Gosport War Memorial Hospital between 1987 and 2001.

The new criminal investigation is being led by Kent Police after three previous ones by Hampshire Constabulary resulted in no prosecutions.
