A man and a woman from Preston have been arrested on suspicion of murder after the death of a 3-year-old girl.


Lia Green was taken from her home at Norris Street, Plungington, to Royal Preston Hospital at 8.20am on Thursday after feeling unwell, but was announced dead on arrival.

A 22-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman have been arrested and are being questioned by detectives.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Superintendent Dermott Horrigan from the Force Major Investigation Team said: “This is an incredibly complex and sensitive inquiry and we have a team of highly trained and professional officers looking into the matter. Dedicated family liaison officers will be working with the family.

“The death of a child will always be greeted with shock and a deep sense of sadness. We have dedicated neighbourhood policing officers working in the area and talking to residents and I would urge anyone who has any concerns to speak to them.”
