Have your say

An 18-year-old woman has been charged with causing the death of a four-month-old baby girl.

She is due to appear in custody charged with causing the death of a child and the wilful neglect of three children, which includes the dead baby, at Thames Magistrates’ Court today.

The baby had been taken to hospital from an address in Bow, east London, on Friday and died 15 minutes after being admitted.

The woman, who has not been named by the police, was arrested yesterday and later charged.

A post mortem has yet to take place.
