A baby boy has been discovered after a concerned neighbour on the Nunsthorpe estate heard crying coming from the bin.
The newborn baby was found alive in the wheelie bin with his umbilical cord still attached in Grimsby.
The baby was discovered in a brown garden waste bin filled with grad’s cuttings at around 5pm on Sunday (19 June).
Local reports say he was found after a concerned neighbour heard crying coming from the bin. After opening the lid, they found the infant wrapped in a brown garden waste bag surrounded by grass cuttings inside.
It is understood that the boy is being treated in hospital. His young mum has also been traced and was taken to hospital, where she is being cared for by relevant authorities.
