Police have charged a woman dental worker from Bedfordshire with poisoning two of her colleagues.

Ravinder Kaur, 33, from Ettrick Drive in Bedford has been suspended from work. It's after two of her colleagues at a practice in Shefford suffered stomach upsets caused by dental mercury poisoning.

Ms Kaur is due to appear at Bedford Magistrates' Court on 31 July 2012 charged with two counts of administering poison with intent to annoy, injure or aggrieve.

The charges relate to two separate incidents in March, in which two female colleagues suffered stomach upsets, said to have been caused by dental mercury poisoning, Bedfordshire Police said.

A force spokeswoman confirmed that the accused, who is currently suspended from work, was not a dentist but worked at the practice.
