Prosecutor Nick Johnson stated;

“I have already told you that the police found a large quantity of hospital paperwork relating to many of the children whose deaths and collapses you are now considering.

“They also found some other interesting items.

“There were some Post-it notes with closely-written words, some of which included the names of some of her colleagues.

“On some of the notes were phrases like as “Why/how has this happened”.

Johnson showed the jury a yellow post-it note that had ‘I am evil. I did this’ written in capital letters on it.

Letby has denied all charges. She allegedly committed the murders at the Countess of Chester Hospital between 2015 and 2016.
