Police investigating death of Blackpool toddler with 'number of serious injuries'
A man has been charged with murder following the death of Kasey Hambleton
A two-year-old girl has died after being found with a “number of serious injuries” in Blackpool.
Connor Gibson, 23, of Melrose Avenue, Blackpool, has been charged with murder following the death of Kasey Hambleton at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool on Saturday.
He will make his first appearance at Blackpool Magistrates Court on Monday.
Officers were originally called by the Ambulance Service to attend an address in Layton, Blackpool, at around 10.20am on Thursday, where Kasey was reported to have been found unresponsive.
She was taken by ambulance to Blackpool Victoria Hospital but later transferred by air ambulance to Alder Hey in a critical condition.
A 23-year-old woman from Blackpool was also arrested on suspicion of murder and has been bailed until 8 July.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Gilbert from Lancashire Constabulary said: “This is a terribly tragic incident where a little girl has sadly lost her fight for life and I am determined to find out exactly what has happened to her and how she has come to acquire injuries so serious that they have proven fatal.
“I personally encourage anyone who may have any information about little Kasey and the days leading up to her death to come forward to help us in what has now developed into a murder investigation.”
