Police are now urging the boy’s mother to get in touch and said they were ‘extremely concerned’ about her.

He said: ‘I want to appeal directly to the mother so that we can offer her medical and emotional support.

‘We know to do this she must have been desperate and by leaving the baby at the hospital we know she wanted him to be looked after and to know he was safe, so our paramount concern now is for the mother’s safety and welfare.’
