Police has arrested a woman after a newborn baby girl was found dead at a recycling centre.
The incident occurred at Lufton Trading Estate in Yeovil where the police found the body of a baby girl.
Emergency services were rushed to the centre in Somerset around 2.30pm on Wednesday.
Officers rushed to a vacant property nearby and arrested a woman on suspicion of concealing a birth.
Detective Inspector Ben Lavender said: “This is a very sad and distressing incident.
”We don’t yet know what has happened and are treating the baby’s death as unexplained at this time, pending the results of a post-mortem examination.
“In the meantime, it has been necessary to arrest a woman in order to interview her under caution and with the appropriate legal safeguards in place.
”While she is in police custody she is receiving appropriate medical support.
“I would urge people not to speculate on the circumstances of this tragic event.”
