Police tape (right size)

6:58am 4th December 2014

At shortly before 6pm on Tuesday, November 25th police were called to an address in Freckleton following an initial report that a woman had given birth to a still-born baby.

When police attended the body of a newly born baby boy was discovered at the address and an investigation was launched. The baby’s mother, a 28 year old woman, was taken by ambulance to Blackpool Victoria Hospital where she was treated and later released.

Following numerous inquiries the death of the baby boy is now being treated as suspicious.

A post mortem examination has been carried out and the cause of death is currently inconclusive. Further tests are now being carried out to try to establish exactly how the baby died.

A 64 year old man and a 28 year old woman from Freckleton have been arrested (on Tuesday, December 2nd) on suspicion of murder, conspiracy to conceal the birth of a child and sexual offences and a 65 year old woman has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to conceal the birth of a child. They are all currently in custody.

The police investigation continues.
