Police will return to a Birmingham park in an attempt to find the mother of a newborn baby who was found in a carrier bag a week ago.

Baby Jade was found in Marlborough Community Park, off Stuarts Road in Stechford, at around 2pm last Thursday by a dog walker.

Police say she is progressing well in hospital and is expected to be placed into foster care in the next few days.

Officers will hand out leaflets in and around the park in the hope witnesses will come forward.
