A FUNDRAISING page has been set up to help meet funeral costs and support the bereaved siblings of a boy who died in unexplained circumstances in Droitwich.

The Just Giving page is already close to its target of raising £2,800 for the siblings of nine-year-old Alfie Scott, who has been named locally, as tributes continue to pour in for him.

Arsenal fan Alfie, who attended Witton Middle School, lost his life at a house in Vashon Drive, Copcut, Droitwich on Thursday. He was found in a critical condition at the semi-detached house and was flown to hospital but nothing could be done to save him.

The page, set up by Kay E Collins, reads: "On 18th February Alfie, a much loved and precious child, died in tragic and unexplained circumstances. He leaves behind his brother and two sisters, who are currently not able to live at home.

Police investigating the unexplained death of a nine year-old boy in Vashon Drive, Copcut, Droitwich released a man and woman on bail last night.

A 33 year-old woman was arrested for suspected child neglect and a 39 year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder. Both have been bailed until March 19.

The boy died on Thursday, February 18, and the cause of his death is not yet known.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "We are continuing to treat this as an unexplained death and are supporting the victim’s family at this time and would ask they are given privacy during this tragic event."

Police and two air ambulances rushed to the semi-detached home in Vashon Drive, Copcut, at around 3pm on Thursday afternoon.
