Missing mum Sammy Edwards and her baby return home

A young mother who went missing after leaving hospital with her newborn baby has returned home, say police.

Sammy Edwards, 19, from Cwmbran, Torfaen, walked out of the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport last Thursday, only 12 hours after giving birth.

Health officials had called police after Ms Edwards left with her baby without having her final post-natal checks.

Police say the pair have now returned home and are both safe and well.

The baby was taken to hospital for a precautionary check up.
