A hospital trust is facing a fine in a criminal prosecution over the death of a baby, after admitting two charges.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is prosecuting Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust over the death of Wynter Andrews.

Wynter died 23 minutes after she was born by Caesarean section in September 2019 at the Queen's Medical Centre.

The prosecution is one of only two the CQC has brought against an NHS maternity unit.

The trust is due to face sentencing at Nottingham Magistrates' Court later after pleading guilty to two charges.

The regulator said it had brought the prosecution after the trust's mistakes meant Wynter and her mother Sarah Andrews did not receive safe care and treatment in its maternity services.

An inquest in 2020 found she died from hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy - a loss of oxygen flow to the brain - which could have been prevented had staff delivered her earlier.
