Two five-month-old babies have died at an address in Bridgend, South Wales Police said.

The children - two of three triplets - were found not breathing at a home in the Wildmill area of Bridgend on Saturday morning.

Emergency services were called at around 10.05am. There are no suspicious circumstances.

A police spokesman said: "The five-month-old children were conveyed to hospital where tragically they were later pronounced deceased.

"There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the deaths which are being treated as a tragic accident."

It is believed one line of inquiry is whether sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), also known as cot death, was involved.

Police later confirmed both victims were baby boys.
