Children find baby in plastic bag

Post  Guest on Thu 26 Feb - 6:02

A day-old baby has been found wrapped in a plastic carrier bag by a group of children outside a south London flat.

The girl, who has been named Grace, was found on the doorstep of a third floor flat at Winterslow House, Flaxman Road in Brixton, at 0825 GMT on Wednesday.

Officers said the baby was wrapped in a blue blanket and placed inside an old blue re-useable Tesco carrier bag.

Police said the girl was about a day old and was black or Asian. She is in good health in hospital, police added.

Hospital staff who attended to the infant named her Grace.

Police said the baby was drinking milk and there seemed to be no long-term damage after she was left outside.

Insp Simon Rooke from Lambeth Police, said: "She was very, very cold but, due to the speedy discovery by these children, she was brought to hospital very quickly and treated."

Mr Rooke said the children who found the baby in the morning were "pleased to have helped".

Concern for mother

Baby Grace was crying when they found her on the doorstep.

He appealed for the mother to come forward so that she could receive appropriate medical attention.

"We may be looking at heavy blood loss and the sooner we can locate her the sooner she can get medical help," he said.

Officers believe the infant was left outside the flat after 0430 GMT and are studying the CCTV footage in the area.

Police were conducting house-to-house enquiries.

A neighbour, Maria Lewis, who lives close to where Grace was found said she was found by the son of her neighbour, Lourdes Marquez, who does not speak English.

Mrs Lewis said Mrs Marquez called her for help after looking in the bag and seeing something move.

Mrs Lewis said: "I looked in and I saw the side of a face and I just panicked and called the police."
