Chief Inspector Stephen Sneddon said: ‘Enquiries into the full circumstances surrounding this incident are ongoing and a woman is currently detained in connection with the investigation.

‘We are not currently looking for anyone else and I want to reassure the local community that there is no risk to them.’

Neighbours described the unnamed mother a ‘quiet’, and mentioned that she ‘always had her curtains shut’.
