The owners of an Ayr holiday park say they are 'deeply saddened' after a baby girl died after taking unwell on Saturday morning. 

Emergency services were called to Craig Tara just before 6am on October 22 to help the one-year-old.

Officers say the girl was taken to hospital but sadly passed away. The death is being treated as unexplained.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police received a report of a one-year-old baby girl having taken unwell at an address in the Dunure Road area of Ayr around 5.50am on Saturday, October 21.

“The baby was taken to University Hospital Ayr, where she died a short time later. The death is being treated as unexplained and enquiries are ongoing.”
