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