A post-mortem examination is due to take place to establish how a baby died at a Greater Manchester school nursery.

Police were called to Ramillies Hall School, in Cheadle Hulme, to reports of a child choking on food shortly after 12:20 BST on Tuesday.

The nine-month-old girl was taken to Stepping Hill Hospital but died a short time later.

School principal Anne Poole said their deepest sympathies were with the child's family.

The school, which is privately run, cares for and educates children aged from six months to aged 16.
