On arrival officers found the man, aged 39, and a three year old child had “sadly passed away”.

An investigation has been launched into the deaths, which are currently being treated as unexplained.

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.”
