Tragedy at Haytor as woman and child fall to their death

A woman and a five-year-old boy have died at Haytor Rocks.

The team were called to assist the emergency services with a tragic incident at Haytor.

A woman and a five-year-old boy died falling between 80-100ft (24-30m) at Haytor Rocks in Dartmoor National Park. A Devon and Cornwall Polic force spokesman said no formal identification has taken place but officers had begun a murder inquiry. Police added that nobody else was being sought in connection with the deaths.

Devon Air Ambulance, a police helicopter, park rangers and members of the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team at Ashburton went to Haytor after an incident was reported shortly before 12:00 BST.
