Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a baby in Plymouth.

Detectives were called after the one-month old girl, from Plymstock, was admitted to Plymouth's Derriford Hospital on Thursday night.

She was taken to the high-dependency unit where she died on Friday.

Her death is being treated as "unexplained" and police are investigating the circumstances leading up to her death.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out early next week in a bid to try to establish what caused her death.
