Greater Manchester Police are investigating the death of a baby less than 24 hours after they were born. Polly Lindop died at St Mary’s Hospital in Manchester back on March 13 2023. 

The coroner and GMP had concerns raised to them and as a result, GMP’s Major Incident Team are investigating Gross Negligence Manslaughter.

Paying tribute to their daughter, Polly’s family said: ‘As Polly’s parents we would like to thank everyone at GMP for their continual efforts everyday in gaining us answers. Our beautiful brave baby girl Polly, we love you and miss you every day. Sleep tight my darling.’

DCI Mark Davis of GMP’s Major Incident Team said: “First, I want to express my condolences to the parents of Polly at what is an extremely difficult time for them. Our thoughts will remain with them as we carry out our investigation.

“A number of hospital staff have been spoken to as witnesses by officers and no arrests have been made at this time.

“The hospital trust has been fully cooperative with the police and all relevant authorities have been kept informed. The investigation into Polly’s death is on-going and her family will continue to be kept updated in relation to any significant developments.”
