A man has been charged with murder after an 11-year-old boy was found injured near to Shipley Country Park.
Ambulance crews were called to Thorpes Road, near to the park in Heanor, on the afternoon of Saturday 18 June to reports that a boy had suffered injuries. He sadly died later that day.
A subsequent police investigation led to the arrest of a 41-year-old man in connection with the death last week.
Michael Harrison, of Eaton Terrace, Nottingham, has now been charged with murder and is due to appear at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court on Monday 4 July.
