Police officer and child, 3, found dead inside Kidderminster house

A serving West Mercia Police officer and a three-year-old child have been found dead at an address in Worcestershire, the force said.

The force says the pair's deaths are 'unexplained.'

West Mercia Police said the pair were found at an address in Kidderminster on Friday morning following concerns for the welfare of a man and young child at the property.

"On arrival officers found the man, aged 39, and a three-year-old child had sadly passed away," the force's statement said.

Assistant Chief Constable Rachel Jones said: “It is with great sadness that I share the news that a serving police officer and a three year old child have passed away.


While the circumstances of the deaths are not fully known, this is clearly a tragic incident and our deepest condolences are with family and colleagues.”

The pair's bodies were found at a home in Cairndhu Drive, in the town's north east.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We were called to reports of a medical emergency at a property on Cairndhu Drive at 9.21am.
"Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and our Hazardous Area Response Team attended the scene.

"On arrival we discovered two patients, a man and a young child.
"Sadly, it quickly became apparent that neither patient could be saved and they were confirmed dead at the scene."

Earlier, West Mercia Police said on Twitter: "We have launched an investigation into the deaths, which are currently being treated as unexplained.

" It is with great sadness that we share this news today."
