Britney's son fractures skull
13:30 12 April 2006
Britney Spears has been quizzed by social services officials after her baby son suffered a fractured skull.
The singer and her husband, Kevin Federline, were questioned after six-month-old Sean Preston was taken to the UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles.
The baby - who is believed to have been in the care of a nanny - banged his head after falling from his highchair.
Days later Britney - who sparked outrage when she was photographed driving with Sean on her knee earlier this year - noticed her son was sleepier than usual and took him to the clinic, where doctors told her his skull was fractured.
A source is quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "She is desperately worried. She didn't know what was wrong with him because he appeared lethargic and was sleeping constantly.
"She took him to the hospital and doctors say he has a minor fracture."
The following day the couple had a routine visit from the Department of Children and Family Services staff, who were accompanied by two police officers.
Los Angeles police sergeant Ken Scheurn is quoted in Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "Deputies from this division carried out escort duties for the Department of Child Services to Britney Spears' home."
Police later said they would not be taking any action.
