#1 The newborn baby was found abandoned in a cardboard box

The infant was discovered wrapped in a blue blanket and wearing a nappy inside a box with a 'sold' sticker plastered on the side outside a house in Corby.

The cardboard box which contained the baby girl was initially dismissed as a piece of rubbish left out for collection before a passerby heard crying.

It is believed the baby may have been lying in the box for up to 90 minutes before she was found.

#2 The baby was found in Ibsen Walk, Corby

The newborn, believed to be between one and four weeks old, was discovered outside a terraced house in Ibsen Walk, Corby, Northants., at around 9am.

Resident Nana Konadu, 40, said the newborn was discovered under a tree by a path near her home in Ibsen Walk.

The mother-of-three said: "I went to work at about 7.30am. I don't think the box was there when I left. It was found around 9am so it could have been there for anything up to an-hour-and-a-half.

"When I found out the box had been found by my house I was shocked. Who could do such a thing?"

She added: "It is possible no one could have found the baby. It's so lucky someone found her."
