“We are keeping an open mind as to what has happened and are exploring every potential avenue.”

Chief Nursing Officer at NHS Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Carol Anderson said: “We are very concerned for the wellbeing of the mother of the baby boy who was tragically found at a recycling centre in Waterbeach last week.

“We want to put out a direct call to her to come forward for the medical help and support she needs. All NHS doors are open, and our team is ready to help, so please do not be frightened to come forward.

“She can seek help by visiting her local GP, midwifery team or A&E department, or by calling NHS 111 in the first instance if she would prefer.”
