The baby, who is believed to be less than a year old, was pronounced dead at the scene despite the efforts of the London Ambulance Service.
Specially trained officers are supporting the next of kin.
North West Commander Roy Smith said: ‘This is a tragic incident and my thoughts are with all those affected including the family and our first responders who rushed to the scene.
‘Whilst I know the effects of this death will reverberate throughout the local community, please be reassured that we are doing everything we can to investigate and, at this early stage, are not seeking any other person in connection with the death.
‘I would like to hear from anyone who feels they may have information that could assist our investigation to understand this horrific tragedy – please contact us on 101 and quote CAD1977 of the 22nd July.’
