The mother’s well-being and safety remain the police’s top priority, they emphasise, urging her to contact them or seek medical attention.
A newborn infant was found deceased in the restrooms of a pub in Leeds, according to the police.
Officers are urging the mother to come forward due to concerns about her health.
On Sunday evening, at approximately 4:45 p.m., someone discovered the infant girl at the Three Horseshoes pub in Oulton.
DCI James Entwistle of the West Yorkshire Police stated, “This is a tragic incident, and we are urging the mother of the infant girl to contact us immediately or seek medical attention, as she likely requires treatment herself after enduring an exceedingly traumatic ordeal.
Pub Responds to Tragic Incident
Our investigations into the incident, in collaboration with NHS partners, are ongoing; however, the mother’s health and safety remain our top priority.
He advised the mother to contact the Leeds maternity assessment unit or the police.
The pub sympathised with all attendees and those whose reservations were subsequently cancelled via a Facebook post.
The statement read, “We understand there is speculation regarding what may have occurred at our establishment this evening.”
Currently, all I can do is offer my sincerest apologies to everyone present during the incident and those scheduled to attend but unable to do so.
Everything you did to help us while we struggled as a team is much appreciated.
I have great admiration for the Team at Three Horseshoes.
