A week-old baby missing from his mother's home in Gloucester has been returned home safely, say police.

His 31-year-old father was arrested in London on suspicion of kidnap and criminal damage. He was brought back to the county on Sunday.

Two women, aged 52 and 44, arrested in Gloucester after the baby was reunited with his mother were released on police bail on Monday until 13 July.

The child's mother is "absolutely overjoyed" said a police spokeswoman.

Assistant Chief Constable Mark Polin said police had not thought the baby would have been harmed, but said the child needed extra care because of his age and needed to be with his mother.

More than 50 police staff, including senior officers, worked on the case in Gloucestershire.
