A man and a woman have been charged with the manslaughter of a two-year-old boy who died in hospital after being taken ill.

Derbyshire Constabulary said the 41-year-old man and the woman, 32, would appear at South Derbyshire Magistrates' Court, accused of killing Riley Pettipierre.

Riley was taken to hospital from a property in Kilbourne Road in Belper, but died shortly afterwards.

Those charged with his manslaughter, who are from Belper, have yet to be named by police.

A post-mortem examination was carried out but the cause of Riley's death is not yet known and police are awaiting the results of toxicological tests.
