A woman has been arrested following the death of a baby described as "barely three weeks old".
The 55-year-old has been held on suspicion of causing death to a child by overlaying - when a baby is suspected to have suffocated when somebody lies on them while in bed.
The baby was found unresponsive by officers at an address at Lychgate Court, Oldham.
The infant was transferred to Royal Oldham Hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.
The arrested woman - who is believed to be related to the child - is continuing to be questioned by police.
