A 19-month-old toddler has died three days after falling into a garden pond in Lincolnshire.

The boy, who lived in Peterborough, was at his grandparents house in Gosberton Risegate, near Spalding, when he fell in the family pond on Sunday.

He was taken to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham but later died, a coroner's officer in South Lincolnshire confirmed.

An inquest is expected to be opened and adjourned on Monday.
