Mother arrested in murder inquiry over deaths of sons

A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the sudden deaths of her two children in Southampton.

Her two-year-old son died in January while his four-year-old brother died last month.

Post-mortem tests proved inconclusive on both children and police are awaiting further results to establish exactly how the boys died.

The 25-year-old mother, from Southampton, has been questioned and released on bail until August.

A report has been submitted to the coroner, police added.
