A 35-year-old woman has been charged after the death of a baby girl in the Longstone area of Edinburgh.

Police were called to a house in Parkhead View at about 14:30 on Tuesday.

Ten-month-old Chloe Sutherland was taken to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children but died just before midnight.

The 35-year-old woman is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Thursday.

Chloe's family issued a statement through Police Scotland which said: "Chloe was a beautiful and vibrant little girl who had everything to live for and who sadly passed away peacefully with her daddy and family at her side.

"Chloe was much loved by her brother and sister and her family and friends and will be sadly missed by all of us.

"We would ask that our privacy be respected at what is a very difficult time."
