A lifeless body of a two-year old baby girl was discovered by the Suffolk police among waste at a Suffolk recycling plant.
The police are desperately seeking the mother of this baby in order to thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to her actions.
Yesterday around 3pm, detectives were called to Ipswich Road in Needham Market after the newborn`s body was found. In light of the frightening discovery, Sackers Yard which was operating throughout the lockdown period had to be closed.
Detective Chief Superintendent Eamonn Bridger phrased that the police were ‘desperate’ to speak to the mother as they were concerned for her welfare. “We understand that this would have been a very distressing experience, “he said.
“We believe the baby was born recently so the mother may require medical assistance and we would urge to speak to the healthcare professional or to attend a hospital.”
According to Det Ch Supt Eamonn Bridger, a post-mortem would be carried out to confirm whether the baby had died before being transported to the recycling centre.
The Sackers` company spokesperson said: “First and foremost we want to send our condolences out to everyone involved in the tragic situation. Our recycling sorting facilities are so thorough that we believe the baby was found very quickly once it was our at Needham market site.”
The Suffolk police urged anyone in UK with information which could assist with their investigation to contact them as soon as they could.
