Three people have been charged in connection with the death of six-month-old Troy Simpson.

Detectives said two women, aged 17 and 47, and a 20-year-old man had been charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

All three are due before Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Troy was reported missing from his home in The Uplands, Smethwick, on Tuesday, sparking a search.
