Police are not looking for anyone else over the death, as Dan Johnson reports.

A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murdering her two-year-old daughter in Bradford.

The girl was found unconscious with her mother outside a house in Delamere Street on Tuesday morning and died later in hospital.

A post-mortem examination revealed the girl died from injuries consistent with being caused by a fall, West Yorkshire Police said.

The girl's mother is still critically ill in hospital.

Police said they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the death.

Sher Khan, the Labour councillor for Little Horton, said he lived locally and thought the occupants of the house had moved in about a year ago.

"I can't recall anything like this, believe me people are shocked," he said.

Mr Khan, who represents the area on Bradford council, said it was a "nice place with close-knit families".

A neighbour of the injured woman said: "I'm shocked, I feel upset... I feel really disturbed.

"It is a quiet little street and this has come out of the blue."

Det Ch Insp Jon Morgan said police had been called by paramedics at about 09:15 GMT on Tuesday.

"The child, a two-year-old girl, was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but was sadly pronounced dead a short time later," he said.

He urged witnesses or anyone with information to contact police.
