Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

PO­LICE are look­ing for the mother of a new­born baby who was found aban­doned by the doors of a hos­pi­tal.

The child was taken in by hos­pi­tal staff and was said to be do­ing well un­der the care of nurses.

But of­fi­cers said they were anx­ious to trace the mother, who might be in need of med­i­cal help.

The baby was left at the en­trance to Dar­ent Val­ley Hos­pi­tal in Dart­ford, Kent, in the early hours of Fri­day.

Det Supt Gavin Moss said: “It is re­ally im­por­tant we lo­cate the mother to en­sure she is safe. I would like to stress this is about en­sur­ing the mother’s well­be­ing, there is noth­ing to fear in com­ing for­ward.”
