Newborn baby found dead wrapped in pink beach towel at Bradford recycling centre as cops appeal to find mum

A NEWBORN baby was found dead wrapped in a pink beach towel at a recycling centre today.

Police are desperately trying to find the baby’s mum after the heartbreaking discovery in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

Emergency services were called to Bowling Back Lane where the baby was found.

The newborn was wrapped in a towel which had a map of the Spanish island of Fuerteventura in yellow on a purple background.

West Yorkshire Police have released a photo of a similar towel, with a fish, sea horses and a palm tree.

Sara Hollins, who is head of midwifery for Bradford, said: “Our main priority is to find the mum of the baby as we are concerned for her wellbeing and want to ensure she gets the appropriate medical care and support.

“We are urging mum or any friends of mum to call the police on 101 or via 07753 672648 (you can text if you want) quoting log 564.

“Mum is likely to be from the Bradford area.”

The force added: “Emergency services have today attended Bowling Back Lane in Bradford where sadly a newborn baby has been found to have died. 

“The baby was wrapped in a pink towel which depicted the island of Fuerteventura in yellow on a purple background.

“There were various pictures associated with tropical locations on the towel also including fish, sea horses and a palm tree.”

This comes after three women were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder after a baby girl was discovered dead wrapped in a yellow Primark towel.

The body of the baby was found abandoned on a cobbled street in Portsmouth on the morning of January 25.

A 39-year-old woman, one aged 21 and a 20-year-old, all from Portsmouth, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
