Bristol pair arrested following death of toddler

A man and a woman have been arrested following the death of a two-year-old boy at a flat in St George, Bristol.

The pair, in their 30s, were arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of manslaughter.

The toddler died on Sunday. Police have launched an investigation and the pair are being questioned.

A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Police said anyone with information which could help the investigation should contact them.

Police have not said how the child died, but said the man and woman were arrested at a different property from where the toddler was found.

A Bristol City Council spokesman said: "'We are aware of this tragic incident and are in close contact with the police.

"It would not be appropriate to say more at this stage whilst police investigations continue."
