Police await further tests on Lisburn toddler after 'unexplained' death

By Claire Cromie

Further tests need to be carried out on a toddler who died tragically in Lisburn on Thursday.

Police are investigating the three-year-old boy's "sudden and unexplained" death and a post mortem is ongoing.

Officers were called to a house in Trinity Terrace, in the Tonagh area of Lisburn, at around 2.20am on Thursday morning.

When they arrived the boy had already died.

A PSNI spokesman said no arrests had been made.

A red toy truck lay in the front yard of the house as officers guarded the property in a patrol car on Thursday evening.

Meanwhile detectives from Lisburn CID made door-to-door enquiries to try to establish the circumstances surrounding the boy's sudden death.

Neighbours said residents of the newly refurbished terrace, located behind a Domino's pizza takeaway and near Holy Trinity Nursery School, had moved in to the busy side street just a few months ago.

It is believed the occupant of the home is a young woman aged in her mid to late 20s.
