(TELEGRAPH) — A neonatal room at a hospital in Northern Ireland is being emptied after three babies died from an infection, medical staff said.

A bacteria called pseudomonas caused the deaths at the Royal Maternity Hospital in Belfast, and other vulnerable babies have been swabbed for signs of it.

The area where they were being treated will undergo deep- cleaning after the remaining three patients have been moved.
