holby.tv can confirm that actress Lucy Gaskell is leaving CASUALTY.
Lucy, who will last be onscreen in August, is quitting as she and her partner, former Casualty actor Mark Bonnar, are expecting a baby this month.
Lucy joined the show in May 2010 as nurse Kirsty Clements. Her character suffered domestic abuse at the hands of her husband Warren and had a fling with Adam Trueman.
Lucy is the first of a number of cast members to be announced to be leaving whilst CASUALTY is set to be moving filming to Cardiff from next month.
