TODDLER DIES AFTER EMERGENCY

Police say the death of a two-year-old girl who was airlifted to hospital in an emergency at the weekend is not suspicious.

The Devon Air Ambulance and the National Police Helicopter were also scrambled but the child was pronounced dead after arriving at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.

Kingsbridge Police left a message of condolence on their Facebook page and published a link to a charity providing support for sudden infant death.

It said: “On behalf of all the emergency services involved, we would like to offer our heartfelt and sincere condolences to the family of this young girl involved in this tragic incident.
