A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a four-year-old boy died in West Yorkshire.

The boy was pronounced dead in hospital after he was found at a house on Harewood Road in Oakworth, near Keighley, in the early hours.

Police have not released details of the boy's identity or his injuries.

A spokesman said a 32-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of murder in the Ingrow area of Keighley and was in custody.

Harewood Road was cordoned off and police teams were seen searching road drains.

A neighbour who knew the family and handed police a teddy bear tribute to leave at the house said the boy was a "lovely little lad".
