A woman has been charged with the murder of a one-month-old baby who was found “seriously unwell” at a block of flats.

The boy, a twin, was taken to Southampton General Hospital by paramedics after they were called to the property in Hythe, Hampshire, on 2 February last year. He died in hospital four days later.

A force spokesman said: “The ambulance service reported that they were dealing with a seriously unwell baby on the morning of Saturday 2 February 2019.

“The baby was taken to Southampton General Hospital but was subsequently pronounced dead on Wednesday 6 February.”
