A man has been charged with the murder of a one-year-old baby girl.

James Chadwick, 21, of Radcliffe, had been arrested along with Chelsea Crilly, 19, from Atherton, both in Greater Manchester.

Chadwick has now been charged with the murder of the girl and Crilly is accused of causing or allowing the death or serious harm of a child.

Police have not said if they are the parents of the dead child. Officers were first called at about 2.25pm on Wednesday to reports that a one-year-old girl was injured at a property on Cross Lane in Radcliffe, near Bury.

Emergency services attended and the girl was taken to hospital, where she died despite the best efforts of the doctors.

Supt Chris Bridge of Greater Manchester police said: “This is a truly devastating incident that has led to a one-year-old girl losing her life.”

Both accused will appear before Manchester and Salford magistrates court later on Saturday.
