Two people have been arrested after a three-month-old boy was taken to hospital with a bleed to the brain.

Police were contacted at about 01:00 BST on Tuesday after the baby had been admitted to Royal Blackburn Hospital.

The infant, who had been at a house in Infirmary Street, Blackburn, is in "a very poorly condition", a Lancashire Constabulary spokesman said.

A man, 21, and a 17-year-old girl, both from Blackburn, were held on suspicion of wounding with intent.

They have been bailed until 6 July.

The boy has been transferred to the Manchester Children's Hospital.
