Two babies have been swapped.

One of the babies is breast-fed by the wrong mother.

The accidental mix up occurs at Bassetlaw Hospital in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

A hospital spokesman says an investigation has begun into what is an “extraordinary and most unfortunate incident which we deeply regret”.

The BBC reports: “A member of staff at the hospital or a relative reported the incident after the maternity unit was given an ‘excellent’ rating by the Healthcare Commission in its recent report, it is believed.”

How soon after? And define “excellent”…
