Serial Killer & # 39; Angel of Death & # 39; Beverley Allitt showed & # 39; no regrets & # 39; because he had killed four children and tried to take the lives of nine others by spilling their injections.
In the new documentary series & # 39; British Police: Our Toughest Cases & # 39; told Detective Michelle Billingsley, former Detective Inspector Neil Jones and DSI Stuart Clifton about their hair-raising encounters with the murderer and how an arrogant Allitt grinned and smiled at her & # 39 ;. police interview.
The former nurse killed Liam Taylor, seven, Timothy Hardwick, 11, Becky Phillips, two months, and Claire Peck, 15 months, in the course of 59 days at Grantham Hospital in Lincolnshire in 1991.
The crimes of Allitt were originally thought to be due to natural causes, but blood samples from nine of the children who had collapsed or died revealed that they had been injected with lethal doses of insulin, potassium or lignocaine.
After a lengthy trial, Beverley Allitt was found guilty of four murders and nine counts of causing serious bodily harm, and received 13 life sentences.
But the baby-face killer spent just a week in prison before being diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder and being moved to Rampton Secure Hospital in Nottinghamshire.

& # 39; She has been placed in a police cell, and you must not forget that this is a girl about 21 years old who has never had any problems with the police, she gets all these charges and she laughs. She is happy with them, & Clifton said.
Neil Jones added: & she was a bad, callous, calculating person. She knew what she was doing. These are defenseless children who trust in her and who attacks them. & # 39;
Clifton hears that the nurse is being interviewed in 1991 and states: & # 39; We are arresting you now for the attempted murder of Paul Crampton.
& # 39; This child received a deliberate injection of insulin from which he could have died. I believe you gave it to him.
She says casually: & # 39; No answer. & # 39;
During her first interview, the serial killer tried to & # 39; bamboo & # 39; with medical jargon, officers have revealed
Clifton continues to interrogate her, but stops when the killer hears the interviewer scoffing while he grins.
He continues: & # 39; This child has received three injections of insulin each time you were alone with him, it is no coincidence. & # 39;
She says, in phases, & # 39; No answer. & # 39;
Allitt is diagnosed with Munchausen's syndrome, in which she invents disease and injures herself to attract attention and the same syndrome by proxy, thereby damaging children for the same effect.

During her first police interview, Allitt was evasive and denied any involvement in the collapse, trying to confuse police medical jargon.
& # 39; She tried to bamboo our way, & # 39; said Michelle. & # 39; We did our best to talk about the insulin and its effects on the body, but we were not medically trained and I think she could easily pick it up. & # 39;
Jones also revealed how Allitt tried to lie away from the situation.
& # 39; She tried to push the blame to other attendees & # 39 ;, he said.
Although Allitt abundantly denied her involvement in the case, Clifton always had his suspicions and would not rest until he discovered the truth, and his theory proved that there was a child serial killer in the children's ward.

& # 39; I couldn't live with myself without following it & # 39 ;, says Stuart.
Allitt's lack of repentance for her crimes had not changed at the time of her 1993 trial.
As Michelle Billingsley revealed: & # 39; She was held in custody at Grantham police station and brought to justice the following morning.
& # 39; I was on duty the next morning and went to the jail because I was going to accompany her to the court.

DSI Stuart Clifton told how an arrogant Allitt & # 39; grinned and smiled & # 39; during her police interview
& # 39; I was shocked that someone could do all of these things and felt no regret at all. But not only was there no regrets, it was the smile, the shrug.
& # 39; She leaned forward and looked out of the van at the people who had gathered around the court as if looking forward to appearing there. & # 39;
After a lengthy trial, Beverley Allitt was found guilty of four murders and nine counts of causing serious bodily harm.
She was sentenced to 13 life sentences in the Rampton Secure Hospital in Nottinghamshire, making her one of the worst serial killers in Britain.
British Police: Our Toughest Cases will be broadcast on Quest Red on Saturday 9 November at 10 p.m.
