Concern for health of waste plant baby's mother

Police in Worcestershire have discharged a 22-year-old woman they arrested in connection with the discovery of a newborn girls body at a waste recycling plant in Peterborough and have expressed concern for the health of the mother.

A worker found the body at a materials recycling facility run by Viridor on August 27.

The body reached the Peterborough site via a sorting plant in Bromsgrove, having been collected from waste bins in Worcester, police have said.

The 22-year old woman has been released by South Worcestershire police and has been ruled out from inquiries.

Police are appealing for the mother of the baby to come forward as they say she could be endangering her welfare if she has not received the correct medical attention.
