Police are appealing for information after a foetus was found outside a north London hospital.
The foetus, believed to be around 16 weeks’ gestation, was found in a box around 9am today.
The discovery was made outside Barnet Hospital and officers are currently treating the matter as unexplained.
Police are urging the mother to come forward as there are concerns for her welfare.
Detective Inspector Matt Coad said: “At this moment, our priority is to ensure that the mother is ok and that she receives the appropriate medical attention.
“This is likely to be a traumatic time for her, and I would ask that she makes contact either with us, her local GP or a hospital.
“We believe that the box was left by a man, aged in [his] 30s, who was wearing dark clothing.
“I would also encourage him to come forward so that we can help.”
