Eight-month-old baby girl dies after 'medical episode' at nursery as police investigate

By Sophie Halle-Richards & Kelly-Ann Mills & Stephen Topping

An eight-month-old baby has died in hospital following a 'medical episode' at a nursery.

Greater Manchester Police were called to the nursery just before 3.20pm on Monday and the little girl was taken to hospital by paramedics, but she sadly later died.

Police are treating her death as "unexplained".

A spokesperson for the police force said they were called to a nursery in Cheadle, Stockport. Ofsted has since confirmed the premises to be Tiny Toes Children's Day Nursery.

Franck Pelle, owner of Tiny Toes Children's Day Nursery, told the Manchester Evening News: "Our heartfelt condolences and deepest sorrow are with the parents and family at this devastating time.

"We are working closely with all involved to assist and due to the sensitivities and ongoing investigation we are unable to comment any further at this time."

Ofsted confirmed it had "suspended this setting to allow time for other agencies to complete their enquiries" while the investigation takes place.

A Stockport Council spokesman added: "The council is aware of the sad news of the death of an eight-month-old girl at a premises on Mellor Road in Cheadle.

"First and foremost, our thoughts go out to the family for their loss at this difficult time. We are not able to comment any further and await the outcome of the investigation."

A Greater Manchester Police spokeswoman added: "Officers were called by colleagues from North West Ambulance Service to a report of a child suffering a medical episode at a premises on Mellor Road in Cheadle just before 3.20pm on Monday.

"An eight-month-old girl was taken to hospital where she sadly died.

"The death is currently being treated as unexplained and an investigation to establish the cause is on-going."
