Officers believe the baby girl was placed into a commercial bin and transported to the recycling centre in one of two bin lorries. 

Over the last two months, officers have recovered CCTV footage from areas in and around 52 bin locations."Detectives are still searching for the baby girl’s mother and urging anyone with information to come forward", Suffolk police said.

"Whilst this may be difficult, someone may hold the key to this complex investigation.

"Officers have also been in contact with over 130 organisations who provide support in communities with the hope of gaining further information about the baby’s mother. "A Home Office post-mortem was held on Tuesday 19 May, with the initial findings proving to be undetermined pending further investigations, which will take some time. "An extensive search was undertaken at Sackers, which concluded on Wednesday 3 June. A number of items were seized and are subject to ongoing review and analysis."
