A murder investigation has now been launched by the police in Blackpool and a post-mortem examination will be carried out to establish the exact cause of death.
Detective Inspector Mark Dickinson, of the Force Major Investigation Team, said: “My thoughts remain very much with this baby’s wider family and they are being supported by specialist officers. “While a man has been charged, our investigation is very much on-going and I would appeal for anyone with information to contact us.”
