A police investigation has been launched after the death of a baby.
The three-week-old girl was found dead at a house in Cupar, on Saturday morning.
Officers confirmed today that they were investigating the circumstances.
A spokeswoman for the force described the tragedy as “unexplained”.
The girl was discovered at a property in Kinloss Crescent, in the north-west of the town, in the early hours.
The Police Scotland spokeswoman told the Tele: “Police in Fife were called to an address in Kinloss Crescent at around 5am on Saturday following the death of a three-week-old baby girl.
“The death is currently being treated as unexplained pending further inquiries and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.”
Locals said that floral tributes were being left at the scene today.
One resident in the street said: “There are flowers and teddy bears left on the steps of one of the houses.
“There was still a CID car in the street when I left this morning and there was a heavy police presence in the area for the weekend.
“The police were sitting in the car but they have been about all weekend. I have seen a lot of different officers in the area.
“I have never seen anything like it in the area before — it is shocking to see on your doorstep.”
Resident Leanne McWilliams, 32, said: “It’s really shocking to hear. I’ve got young kids myself so to hear that was awful.”
Andrew Turner, 52, said: “From what I know it happened around the middle of the crescent.
“There were flowers left next to the house today and police had been there on Sunday.”
