A woman has been charged with the murder of her baby daughter.

Seven-month-old Amelia Crichton was found unresponsive at an address on Slater Lane, Leyland, in the early hours of 19 April, police said.

The baby suffered cardiac arrest and was taken to Manchester Children's Hospital where she died from head injuries two days later, officers said.

Jennifer Crichton, 34, from Leyland, is due to appear before magistrates in Preston later.
