The parents and uncle of a 17-month-old baby have been arrested after the child was taken to a Marbella health centre having ingested cannabis.

The three adults, all British, were at home when the little girl came into contact with the drug without them noticing. During a later search of their home, police seized more than 200 grammes of cannabis and materials used for growing marijuana plants.

An investigation into possible public health offences and neglect is under way.
