Gardaí say they are "very concerned" for the mother of a newborn baby girl whose remains were found in a recycling centre.

The baby's body was found in waste at the Greenstar recycling plant at the Fassaroe Industrial Estate in Bray, Co Wicklow, at around 11am yesterday.

Last night gardaí issued a nationwide appeal for the mother to come forward, saying: "We will be as caring as we possibly can be."

Detectives are examining whether the girl's body originated from waste collected in Co Limerick or north Dublin.

Early indications are that the baby was full-term and that there was no foul play involved in her death.

Last night, Supt Pat Ward appealed to the mother to come forward. "Mum can be assured that if she contacts us, we will be as caring as we possibly can be to her and will provide as much support as possible," he said.
