A saboteur was feared to be on the loose at an NHS hospital last night after two terminally-ill patients died following the suspected contamination of their medication.

Nurses at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport, Greater Manchester, raised the alarm when they noticed that several ampoules of saline solution appeared to have been injected with insulin.

The patients who have died are a woman aged 44 and a 71-year-old man.

However, detectives are also investigating the possibility that the lives of 10 other patients were put at risk.

The most likely scenario is that the ampoules were interfered with inside the hospital.

A police source told the Daily Telegraph: “At best someone has tampered with them for whatever reason. At worst this was a deliberate attempt to harm patients.”
