A woman has been charged with murder after an 18-month-old baby died following a fall from a sixth-floor window in Bradford.

23 year old Gemma Procter will appear before Bradford magistrates this morning charged with the murder of Elliot Proctor. 

Officers were called to Newcastle House on Barkerend Road at about 5.10pm on Saturday afternoon.

Detective Superintendent Nick Wallen, who is leading the investigation, said: "This is clearly an extremely traumatic incident and specially trained officers are working to support the child's family members and those who witnessed what took place.

"It is no exaggeration to say those who witnessed this incident will have been deeply traumatised by what they saw.

Police said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident but have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Bradford CID on 101, quoting reference number 1506 of October 21 2017.
