Police investigating the death of a 24-year-old woman and her five-year-old son, who died in a fall from rocks on Dartmoor in Devon, have found a child's body at the woman's home.

The woman and boy died falling between 80-100ft (24-30m) at Haytor, a famous Dartmoor landmark, Devon and Cornwall Police said.

The body of a two-year-old boy, also believed to be her son, was later found in Dukes Close, Paignton.
