Police investigating the death of a three year old girl in Sheffield say it could been some time before tests find the cause of her death.

Lylah Aaron was taken to hospital after an ambulance was called to a house in Beck Road, Shiregreen, Sheffield, on Friday evening.

Lylah was taken to the city's Children's Hospital but died early on Saturday morning, despite the efforts of doctors.

On Tuesday, South Yorkshire Police said a post mortem examination had now been carried out.

A spokesman said: “An initial post mortem examination was carried out yesterday at the hospital.

“Further tests are now required and are being undertaken. It is expected to be some weeks before the results are known.''

Tributes to Lylah have continued to be placed outside the house where she was found by the paramedics.

Toys and flowers have been attached to the fence at the front of the property, which is in the middle of a row of four houses in the centre of the large Shiregreen council estate.

On Monday, 30-year-old Delroy Catwell, of Beck Road, Shiregreen, appeared at Sheffield Magistrates Court charged with Lylah's murder.

He was remanded in custody and is due to appear again at Sheffield Crown Court on February 18.
