Police today say they do not believe there are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of an infant.
Officers from Norfolk Police were called to Netherwood Green, near Norfolk County Hall, Lakenham, shortly after 1pm yesterday, after what they described as 'concerns for the welfare of a child'.
Neighbours said three ambulances and a number of police cars arrived outside the property, which is in the last of a series of blocks of flats at the end of the road, but the infant was pronounced dead at the scene.
While the death continues to be treated as unexplained, police do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident.
Enquiries are ongoing today.
The property was sealed off to allow initial enquiries to take place but this was lifted at about 8pm last night.
A post mortem to establish the cause of death will take place in due course.
