I tell the story of Beverley Allitt in this episode.


Beverley Allitt was a state-enrolled nurse in the children's ward at Grantham and Kesteven Hospital in Lincolnshire when she murdered Liam Taylor, Timothy Hardwick, Becky Phillips and Claire Peck.


The children, aged seven weeks, eleven years, nine weeks and fifteen months, respectively, were killed between February and April 1991.


In total, Beverley attacked thirteen children over 59 days in 1991 and was handed thirteen concurrent terms of life imprisonment on May 28, 1993.


A sufferer of Munchausen syndrome, Allitt is thought to have carried out the attacks to attract attention to herself.


NOTE: Beverley is now eligible for release on parole as her minimum tariff of 30 years expired in November 2021. This information came to light after this episode was initially broadcast.
