The Daily Echo reported the flat is occupied by a woman, her daughter and a set of twins born last month.

Last night a police spokesman said: “We were called at 9.38am on Saturday by the ambulance service, who reported they were dealing with a one-month-old baby boy who was seriously unwell.

“The air ambulance was called but the baby was taken to Southampton General Hospital by road. “A 41-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

“They have been released from custody but remain under investigation.”

Shocked locals said they had seen police “everywhere” along the street.

It is understood they were asking neighbours if they had heard anything the night before.

A South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) sent a co-responder, a rapid response vehicle, an ambulance and the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.
