Police investigating the death of a seven-month-old baby have arrested a woman in Leicester.

The 32-year-old was arrested following an incident on Netherhall Road, shortly after 10:00 GMT on Sunday.

Both mother and baby were admitted to hospital in the city, where the child subsequently died.

The woman has since been discharged from hospital, following treatment for what police believe are self-inflicted injuries.

A police spokesperson said a post-mortem examination is due to be carried out.
