Two people have been bailed after a newborn baby was found dead in a supermarket car park in Bilston, near Wolverhampton.

A 21-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man were arrested in connection with the baby boy's death.

West Midlands Police issued an appeal to find the mother of the baby, after he was found just after 9am on 11th April.

Officers say they've since identified the mother, who was taken to hospital "to receive appropriate care."

Police say a post mortem examination will be carried out on the baby boy, who was not thought to be at full-term.
