Man arrested over baby death released

A MAN arrested over the death of a nine-month-old baby in Great Houghton has been bailed.

The young boy suffered a cardiac arrest last Friday and died in hospital on Monday afternoon.

A post-mortem caused police to suspect foul play and the man was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Det Insp Mark Oughton, leading the investigation, described it as “tragic” and “incredibly harrowing”.

Police have not yet released the name of the man or the deceased boy.

They urge anyone with relevant information to call 101, quoting incident number 851 of November 30.
