Relatives of a baby who died in suspicious circumstances have paid tribute to their "beautiful, vibrant little girl''.

Ten-month-old Chloe Sutherland died after being admitted to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh yesterday.

A woman understood to be the child's mother has been arrested in connection with the death.

A family statement released via police said: "Chloe was a beautiful and vibrant little girl who had everything to live for and who sadly passed away peacefully with her daddy and family at her side.

"Chloe was much loved by her brother and sister and her family and friends and will be sadly missed by all of us.''

Police were called to an address in Edinburgh yesterday afternoon after concern was raised about a child's welfare.

A 35-year-old woman is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court tomorrow.
