No medical explanation could be found for the sudden death of a six-month-old baby, an inquest heard.

Jasper Cragg was found unresponsive in his cot at his home in Spring Vale, Gayton, near King's Lynn, on February 14.

Area coroner Yvonne Blake heard he could not be resuscitated.

Det Sgt Simon Cooper said in a report that his death appeared to be "a tragic example of the sudden death of a child".

He said there was no medical explanation and there were no suspicious marks.
