A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a two-year-old boy in Greater Manchester.

Police were called to a house in Cheriton Drive in the Breightmet area of Bolton on Sunday after reports the boy was having a cardiac arrest.

The boy was taken to the Royal Bolton Hospital but later died.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed the man arrested was the partner of the child's mother.

A post-mortem examination is expected to take place at Manchester Children's Hospital later.

Det Supt Jon Chadwick said the investigation was at an early stage.

He added: "I would like to extend my sympathies to this young boy's family and friends at what is clearly a very difficult and emotional time for everyone."
