A newborn baby was found alive with his umbilical cord in a dustbin in Grimsby.

The boy was discovered around 5 p.m. Sunday in a brown garden bin full of grass clippings.

Local reports say a concerned neighbor heard crying coming from the trash can and opened the lid to find the child inside.

He was taken to hospital after a major police response to Langton Close on the Nunsthorpe estate.

The baby’s young mother was tracked down and also taken to the hospital and is now being cared for by the relevant authorities.

At least four police cars and vans were at the scene along with two ambulances.

Police officers were seen conducting house-to-house inquiries and questioning shocked residents.

Families and pensioners live in semi-detached and terraced houses in the quiet street.

A resident said: “The mother must have been too young to understand or didn’t want anyone to know she was pregnant. We just hope she gets the care she needs and her baby.”

A spokesman for the East Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We received a call to a home address in Grimsby at 4.58pm on 19 June. The caller reported a medical emergency.

“We dispatched two manned ambulances and two patients were taken to Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital.”

Humberside Police said at the time: “Officers are present at a property on Winchester Avenue following a safety concern that was reported on June 19.

“Those affected were supported. There are no problems or risks for the wider community.’
