Greater Manchester Woman Arrested On Suspicion of Concealing Birth

A woman from Whitefield has been arrested by Police and questioned after reports of an abandoned new born baby.

The 28 year old was arrested on Wednesday night, after police were told a girl had given birth and left the baby wrapped in a bag near Owd Betts in Rochdale Road, Edenfield on Tuesday.

Officers discovered a carrier bag with human blood inside it, along with a white knitted blanket  and a purple size 12 female top. But no baby or foetus was found.

Doctors are now checking to see if the woman has given birth.
