An 11-month-old girl has died after being mauled by a dog, police have said.
Two people, a 24-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman, have been arrested in England on suspicion of child neglect and are in police custody.
It is believed the baby girl was not in her own home at the time of the attack.
The unnamed victim was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital from a home in Emily Street at 11pm yesterday and later died.
The dog was seized from the address by Lancashire Police.
Officers are continuing to carry out inquiries at the scene and investigate the circumstances of the incident.
Detective Superintendent Simon Giles said: “This is a tragic incident and specially trained officers are offering support to the wider family. A full investigation is underway.”
Police have yet to confirm the breed of dog involved.
