A murder investigation has been launched following the death of a baby girl in Aylesbury.

Police were called to a house in Narbeth Drive, Aylesbury, at 4.30pm on Sunday 3 April to reports that a six-month-old baby had been taken ill.

Paramedics attended but sadly the baby girl died at the scene.

Next of kin have been informed.

Following the results of the post mortem, which was inconclusive, a murder investigation was launched.

A 31-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man, both from Aylesbury, were arrested last night (13/4) on suspicion of murder.

They are currently in custody.

Senior Investigating Officer, Det Chief Insp Mike Lynch said: “We understand that local residents may be concerned about what has happened. We believe this to be an isolated incident and we are conducting a full investigation to establish the circumstances surrounding the death.

“A scene watch remains in place in Narbeth Drive and officers are in the area today conducting enquiries.

“If anyone has any concerns, please speak to Neighbourhood Officers in the area or call 101.”

Narbeth Drive is a quiet residential street close to a family friendly park.

This afternoon a police van stood in a driveway of a home with the shutters down, as parents headed to Broughton Infants School to pick up their children.

A car remains parked in the driveway of the smart home.

A neighbour expressed shock when told about the incident, asking if it was a hoax, and then if the street name was correct.
