A former Lincolnshire nurse who murdered four children has reportedly been given the coronavirus vaccine.
Beverley Allitt, who is from Grantham, was given 13 life sentences after she was convicted of murdering four kids while working as a nurse in Lincolnshire in 1993.
She is renowned as one of Lincolnshire’s most notorious criminals for her crimes in which she attempted to murder three other children and caused grievous bodily harm to another six.

During her trial in 1993, the jury heard that psychiatrists who had examined her had concluded she was suffering from Munchausen Syndrome by proxy, a mental illness where sufferers crave attention.
