Police are investigating the suspicious deaths of a woman and a toddler in a Lancashire village.
The bodies of the 26-year-old woman and 22-month-old boy - understood to be a mother and son - were discovered after officers were called to an address in Euxton at about 6.55pm yesterday.
Detectives are treating the case as a murder inquiry but are not looking for anyone else over the deaths.
Post-mortem examinations are due to take place to establish the causes of death of the pair.
