A man and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a six-year-old girl at a Hampshire campsite.

Police were called to the Holmsley campsite in the New Forest just after midnight. South Central Ambulance Service, who were first on the scene, said the girl was "fitting and not breathing" and went into cardiac arrest.

A 30-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, from Gosport, are in custody.

Lucy Dibdin from Hampshire Police says an investigation at the scene is still ongoing.
