Two women have been arrested on suspicion of child abduction after a nine-week-old baby was taken from his home.

He was reported missing from Manor Road, Arleston, Telford, in Shropshire at about 15:00 GMT but found "safe and well" at about 18:30.

It is not yet known where the boy was found, but he has since been taken to a hospital for a precautionary check-up.

Two local women have been arrested and are currently in police custody.

The force launched an urgent appeal following the disappearance, asking anyone with information to contact them.

A spokesman said: "We are pleased to confirm that the missing baby boy has been found.

"He is currently being checked over by hospital staff and will be reunited with his family shortly."
