Crying baby 'put in cupboard' by midwifePA

A midwife at Queen's Hospital in Romford, Essex, has been suspended after she allegedly put a crying newborn baby in a cupboard.

The woman is said to have shouted at the screaming baby then grabbed its cot and put it in a cupboard before walking away.

She was made to take the baby out after telling shocked colleagues what she had done.

A source at the hospital told the Sun: 'Who could do that to any child, let alone a newborn baby? She said the baby was crying too much and others had complained.'

Queen's has now launched an inquiry into the incident.

What do you think? Shocking behaviour from someone we hope would be calm and collected??
