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.
