Police probe death of baby boy

Police are investigating the death of a four-week-old baby boy.

The child was pronounced dead at Blackpool Victoria Hospital after being taken by ambulance from a house on Rydal Avenue in the town at around midday on Boxing Day.

Two people were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and child neglect, Lancashire Police said.

The pair, a 33-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman, have been bailed until June.

Police are treating the death as "unexplained" and a post-mortem examination is due to take place tomorrow.
