A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a baby died.

Police were called to Preston Road, Wembley, at around 9.51am today (July 22) to reports of an injured infant.

Eyewitnesses saw at least eight police cars parked on a pavement as police went to an address on the road while a cordon was in place.

A baby, believed to be less than a year old, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they are not confirming the baby’s gender at the moment.

Next of kin are being supported by specially trained officers, while a woman has been arrested today and remains in custody.

It is believed that all parties involved were known to each other.

North West Commander Roy Smith said: “This is a tragic incident and my thoughts are with all those affected including the family and our first responders who rushed to the scene.

"Whilst I know the effects of this death will reverberate throughout the local community, please be reassured that we are doing everything we can to investigate and, at this early stage, are not seeking any other person in connection with the death.”

Enquiries into the circumstances of the death continues.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact 101 and quote CAD1977 of 22nd July.
