Images of a newborn baby boy who was abandoned on a doorstep in east London over the weekend have been released by police.

Officers concerns are growing over the welfare of the little boy’s mother and hope she will come forward to assist the police.

Officers believe that Baby Edward was just 12 hours old when he was found on the doorstep at an address in Hackney, east London by a member of the public.

Baby Edwards was named shortly before midday on Saturday but officers are worried about the health and wellbeing of his mother who gave birth outside of a hospital environment.

Detective Sergeant Andy Barry said: “Edward is being well cared for by hospital staff and is a healthy, bonny lad.

“I am reaching out to Edward’s mother. You are my primary concern. I do not know the circumstances around Edward’s birth but, as a father myself, I understand how daunting becoming a parent can be.

“I can offer you help, please be assured that you are not in trouble. Edward is safe and well, and your health and wellbeing is our priority.

“To anyone who may know Edward’s mother, I’d urge you to come forward and help me locate her – this can be done in confidence.

“I’d also like to hear from anyone who was in the Sandringham Road area between 10am and 12pm on Saturday January 25. If you noticed anything or saw someone, please contact us as a matter of urgency.”
