DETECTIVES today arrested teenage Stowmarket parents over the mystery death of one of their four-month-old baby boys.

James Tuffs, 19, and Zoe O'Leary 17, are being held at Bury St Edmunds police station after one of their three children, thought to be Byron, was taken to West Suffolk Hospital by ambulance.

The boy was certified dead shortly after 10am on Wednesday.

The twins hit the headlines last September when their mother went into labour at Debenhams' store in Ipswich and the first baby, Tyrese, was delivered by shop staff.

The couple, who live in Hill Rise, also have an older daughter, Aaliyah.
