A toddler who fell from a fifth-floor flat in Plymouth has been moved to a specialist care unit in Bristol.

Fifteen-month-old Shantelle Clarke has been transferred from Derriford Hospital in Plymouth to Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.

She was described as being in a critical but stable condition earlier, but no update on her condition was available.

Shantelle fell from a bedroom window of the flat at Savage Road, Barne Barton.

Devon and Cornwall Police are not treating the incident on Saturday morning as suspicious.

Sanctuary Housing Services, which owns the block of flats, said it was working with the police on the investigation.
