Three babies die after infection outbreak in hospital

Three babies have died at a hospital in Northern Ireland following the outbreak of a bacterial infection.

The bacterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, is found in soil, water, plants and animals and is particularly harmful to those with weakened immune systems.
