A two-year-old boy has died after falling from a third-floor balcony in Torbay, police said.

Devon and Cornwall Police said officers were called after an ambulance crew was sent to a flat in Lichfield Avenue in Torquay at about 19:40 BST on Friday.

The child was taken to Torbay Hospital, where he subsequently died.

The death is not being treated as suspicious, but police said they wished to hear from anyone with information or who witnessed the fall.

Floral tributes have been placed at the building the boy fell from, which is on a housing estate less than a mile (1.6km) from the sea.
