Ginger Spice encountered some trauma when she found her baby daughter Bluebell bruised and bawling only after leaving her with a temporary nanny. The incident happened while Geri Halliwell was staying with two pals at a luxury cottage on the grounds of Liphook Golf Club, Hants. They went for a walk, leaving three month old Bluebell with the nanny, but when they returned, she was obviously in distress.
An insider said: "Geri was absolutely hysterical. Bluebell is such a happy little child and it broke Geri up to see her in such a state. She could tell that this was not just a baby's tantrum, so she checked Bluebell and found bruising on her arm."
But the nanny, believed to have been hired from an agency while Geri looks for a permanent care taker said nothing and the former Spice Girl reported the bruises on Bluebell's arm to cops. A Metropolitan Police spokesman told the News of the World: "We have received an allegation of abuse against a three-month-old baby. Officers from our Child Abuse Investigations Unit are investigating and inquiries are continuing. There have been no arrests.
