The body of a newborn baby has been found in a Morrisons supermarket car park.

Police are urgently trying to trace the find the mum of the tiny baby after they were discovered at the store car park in Bilston, West Midlands, on Sunday.

West Midlands Police confirmed the awful news after officers and ambulances were pictured responding to the scene just after 9am.

No clues were left with the baby to indicate where they had come from or who they belonged to, BirminghamLive reports.

However, they are "extremely concerned" for the welfare of the baby’s mum, and are urgently appealing for her or anyone who knows who she is to come forward.

Det Insp Jim Edmonds, from the public protection unit, said: “This is a truly tragic discovery, and we’ve been treating the scene and the baby with the utmost care and dignity today.

“While we don’t yet know what has happened, what we do know is that there must be a mother out there who is in real need of help − and she is my absolute priority at the moment.

“We have been checking CCTV and speaking to hospitals, but it may be that the mother or someone who knows who she is sees this appeal.
