A childminder has been arrested by police investigating the death of a one-year-old baby following an incident at a nursery in Noord-Brabant.

The infant was taken ill while in the care of the 45-year-old woman at the nursery run from her home in Alphen-Chaam in January 2022.

The child was taken to hospital but died two days later. Police did not say if it was a boy or girl.

The woman was arrested after a forensic investigation revealed that the child had died from “inflicted injuries”. She is expected to appear in court on Friday.

The nursery has since been closed.
