'My husband and a friend called 999 while my friend covered the baby with a shirt as it was completely naked'.

Officers have arrested a 23-year-old woman on suspicion of murder in connection with the incident and she remains in police custody.

Police at Newcastle House in Bradford, where an 18-month-old baby died following a fall from a sixth-floor window, a 23-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the baby's fall.

She said the ambulance arrived after about 20 minutes.

Mrs Tomaszewicz's niece added: "She could not sleep at all last night".

"They tried their best for the baby".

Andrew White, 53, said he lived on the same landing as the flat where the baby fell.

He said a couple with two young children live there.

Mr White, a father-of-three with four grandchildren, said: "They are a nice young couple who keep themselves to themselves which is normal here".

Det Sup Nick Wallen, who is leading the investigation, said: 'This is clearly an extremely traumatic incident and specially trained officers are working to support the child's family members and those who witnessed what took place.

He said: "There's quiet a high turnover of people in these flats, you wouldn't necessarily know your neighbours".

Newcastle House, which has shops on the ground floor and seven stories of flats above, stands above Bradford city centre.

Police have said they're not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident, but are appealing for witnesses or anyone else with information to come forward. "I just keep to myself".

He went on to say how those who witnessed the incident had been "deeply traumatised by what they saw".

The resident saw police activity in the block on Saturday night but did not know what happened until he saw the news this morning.

He said there were people of different nationalities living in the block.

"It's hard to take".
