Staff working close to a Stratford road junction where a baby was found unresponsive on a bus have described their shock at the little girl’s death.
Emergency services were called to the junction of Carpenters Road and High Street at around 10.20am yesterday.
The three-month-old baby, who has not yet been formally identified, was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.
A 27-year-old woman and a 52-year-old man were arrested separately on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.
