A THREE-YEAR-OLD boy has died after falling into a swimming pool in Upavon.

The boy was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital last night but died in the early hours of this morning.

Wiltshire Police received reports of a missing child at about 7pm and the boy was found shortly after 7.20pm in a nearby swimming pool.

He received emergency medical treatment at the scene but was unresponsive.

Formal identification has yet to take place and Wiltshire Police are working with Hampshire Constabulary and partner agencies to prepare a report for the coroner’s office.
