Childminder to be sentenced for killing baby in Hapton

A childminder is due to be sentenced on Thursday, after she admitted killing a baby under her care in Hapton.

The North West Ambulance Service was called to a property in Mill Lane at 1.19pm on March 1, 2022 following a report that a nine-month old baby was in cardiac arrest.

Baby Harlow Collinge was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital where it was discovered he had significant and non-accidental injuries to his brain.

Karen Foster (62) was arrested at that time on suspicion of Section 18 grievous bodily harm.

Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, Harlow died on March 5, 2022.

A post mortem examination revealed that Harlow’s cause of death was inflicted traumatic brain injury.

Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, Foster (pictured) was charged with murdering Harlow.

Foster, now of no fixed address, appeared in the dock at Preston Crown Court and pleaded guilty to manslaughter. That plea was deemed acceptable by the prosecution and Lancashire police following a review of the evidence.

She was remanded back into custody and will be sentenced on Thursday.
