Police investigating the discovery of a baby's body in a recycling plant have revealed the child had died in the last fortnight. The information was released as detectives try desperately to trace the mother of the boy, who was found at a site in Bradford on Wednesday.
Adam Fowler talks to Detective Superintendent Mark Ridley from West Yorkshire police at the press conference.
A post mortem has revealed that the body of a baby found at a waste management site in Bradford on Wednesday night was a boy. They believe he had been in gestation for 34-36 weeks and had a congenital heart defect.
West Yorkshire Police say they have no reason to think that this baby was in any way connected with the previous baby found at the same site in May 2011. They have renewed their appeal for the mother to come forward.
