Baby death probe appeal: 'I know you cared for the baby'

Police have posted a video on social media urging the mother of a baby whose body was found in Newport to get in touch.

The discovery was made just before 14:00 GMT on Friday on land close to Imperial Park, Coedkernew.

In the video, Lucy, a member of the team investigating, said she was "really worried" for the mother.

She added: "I know you cared for the baby because you wrapped your little one in a towel".

Gwent Police is currently treating the death as unexplained.
