A four-year-old boy has died after an incident at a Center Parcs resort.
The emergency services were called to the resort at Longleat in Wiltshire after a “serious medical incident” at a swimming pool at around 11am this morning.
Wiltshire Police said: “Our thoughts are with the boy’s family at this difficult time.”
The death is not being treated as suspicious, the force added.
