A FATHER suspected of murdering his two-month-old daughter has had his bail extended by police.

Baby Chantelle Pilkington spent four days on a life support machine at Great Ormond Street Hospital before she died in August last year.

She had suffered head injuries and her dad, Tom Smith, 23, was later arrested on suspicion of causing her grevious bodily harm.

But, following a post mortem, police decided to upgrade the case to a murder investigation.

Smith, of Friars Street, Shoebury, will answer bail again on March 31.
