The parents of a nine-month-old baby who died after being taken to hospital have been arrested on suspicion of murder.

A 35-year-old woman and a man aged 32 were arrested at Wolverhampton police station on Wednesday in connection with the girl's death.

The baby, whose name has not been released, died at Wolverhampton's New Cross Hospital on January 6, shortly after being taken by ambulance from an address in the Park Village area of the city.

A forensic post-mortem examination has taken place, but further tests are being carried out to determine the exact cause of death.

A police spokesman said the child's parents had been bailed whilst further investigations continue.
