a newborn baby girl abandoned at an east London park amid freezing temperatures. The baby girl was discovered in Newham late on Thursday night and taken to hospital, the Metropolitan Police said.
Incredibly the child was found alive, despite 1C temperatures and snow across the capital.
The child is being cared for at an east London hospital and her condition is stable at this time.
Police are increasingly concerned for the welfare of the baby’s mother who may be in need of urgent medical attention and urge her to contact police or London Ambulance Service.
Appealing directly to the mother, Inspector Shane Clarke of the North East Command Unit said: "I urge you to make contact either with police, your local hospital or GP surgery. It is really important that we know that you are safe.
"I would also urge anyone who has information that could help us to reunite this baby with her mother to come forward."
