Parents released on bail after death of baby

Detectives investigating the death of a baby boy in 2011 have released their parents on bail after they were arrested in connection with his death.

The 32-year-old father and the boy's mother, who's 24, were arrested at their home in Harraby, Carlisle, yesterday. No more details are being released.

“While we appreciate this is a very difficult and stressful situation for this child’s parents, we have a duty to investigate all unexpected or suspicious deaths. Only when it's absolutely necessary and we can justify such actions do we take these steps."

– Detective Superintendent Mike Forrester, Cumbria Police.
