The body was found by a plumber working in the grounds of a property in Scartho Road on Thursday afternoon.

Early yesterday afternoon we attended a property In Scartho Road, Grimsby following a report regarding the discovery of the body of a baby having been found in the drain of the rear garden.

I can confirm that sadly this was found to be the case and early indications would suggest that the body may have been there for some time.

A post-mortem examination is due to take place on Monday and it is hoped that this will provide the investigation with a better indication of age, whether the child was born alive or not, and ultimately how long the body had been in that location prior to discovery.
