The body of the baby was discovered by a member of staff at the Greenstar recycling plant, near Fassaroe in Bray, Co Wicklow, at around 11am on Wednesday.

A post-mortem examination was carried out yesterday evening by State Pathologist Marie Cassidy and, although the outcome was "inconclusive", it is not believed foul play was involved.

"The findings of the post mortem would suggest that the baby was born some weeks earlier than initially thought. It is confirmed that the baby is female and Caucasian," a garda spokesperson said.
