A man and woman have been found guilty of child neglect over a baby found seriously injured earlier this year.

The 22-year-old woman was convicted at Reading Crown Court along with a 28-year-old man who has also been convicted of GBH on Friday (Sept 14).

It's after a 7-month old girl was taken to hospital with a number of fractures to her legs in Bracknell back in March. 

The pair, who can't be identified for legal reasons, have been both been released on bail to be sentenced at Reading Crown Court on 26th October.

Detective Constable Andy Ward, who led the investigation, said: "This has been a lengthy and complex investigation and i am pleased that the offenders have been convicted.  

"Thames Valley Police has worked closely with the Crown Prosecution Service, social care and other partner agencies in investigating this incident.

"The baby in this case was hurt by the people that should have been caring for her. Fortunately, it appears that she will make a full recovery from her injuries."
